Oatmeal Crisps

Oatmeal Crisps are so thin but they are packed with flavor.  You will eat a whole stack before you know it!

I am all about a crispy cookie.  Soft cookies are just a waste of calories to me.

I have to say cookies are one of my favorite ways to enjoy dessert.  So, I am always trying to come up with great crispy cookie recipes.

These oatmeal crisps are obviously crispy, so says the name, but they are also outrageously thin. Don’t let their thin stature fool ya’ though, they are loaded with great flavor and are addictively good.

That thin appearance was a bit misleading when I pulled them out of the oven, because before I knew it and looked down to see 3,4 or maybe it was 5 gone.  I had to get myself under control because the photos still needed to be taken.  I packed up the extra and stored them in the refrigerator and all were gone by the next day.  Yep, they are that good.

What is your favorite type of cookie?  Crispy or soft?

  1. I’ve been making these for a while and love them. i’ve always used raw coconut oil instead of butter and they come out perfectly. This time, I mixed 3/4 cup of unsulfured (sun-dried) raisins to the oatmeal/coconut oil mixture after the oatmeal was fully coated. Th raisin version is fabulous!!!

  2. Hi,

    I made these today and the only variation was using Earth Balance for non-dairy. I baked on top 1/3 shelf as directed. They spread like yours and were deeply golden but they never crisped up after cooling – I when tried putting them in the freezer but they still never crisped up. Any clue as to what went wrong. I have never has issues with earth balance before – if it is that then do you have any other butter substitute. Thx, Kim

    1. Hi Kim, I have never cooked with Earth Balance, so I can’t give you an opinion on if that is the reason why your cookies were not crispy. I think with this recipe you need to use butter.

      1. Hi,

        Wanted to post back and let any dairy free folks know that Spectrum Vegetable Shortening Butter Flavor, did the trick – it make the cookies crisp not mushy like Earth Balance.
