Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Cinnamon Chips


These cookies are seriously divine! The cinnamon chips add the perfect touch to the classic oatmeal cookie. My friend Melissa made them for me awhile back and I raided my neighbor Britany’s pantry on Sunday so I could make them. I was seriously craving these and did not have any cinnamon chips. Apparently in AZ you can only find them at Albertson’s. I never shop there, but it’s worth making the extra trip! I doubled the recipe and they are now gone. Disclaimer: I did give 2 plates away. But seriously these are ADDICTING! Holy cow! At least they are semi-healthy…right?! ;)








Oatmeal Raisin Cookies WITH Cinnamon Chips. Yum!

    I’ve never used cinnamon chips, but these sound delish! Thanks for sharing.

      Neither had I, but they are perfect in these! They just have a hint of cinnamon, not over powering.

    I didn’t even know there were cinnamon chips! My husband is going to love these :)


    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes replied on May 26th, 2011 at 1:40 pm

      haha I know! Supposedly they are at EVERY store in UT. So I’m sure you won’t have a problem finding them.

    Can I use the cinnamon chips instead of raisins? I think that would be delightful! I am going to have to go on the hunt for cinnamon chips!


    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes replied on May 26th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

      Yeah totally! I would just add in an extra 1/2 cup. YUM!

    I am totally going to make them now. I’ve never used cinnamon chips before (I don’t think I’ve actually ever heard of them before, either). They sound so yummy!


    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes replied on May 27th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

      Oh yes they are super yummy! The cinnamon chips are a little hard to find.. but definitely worth making the extra trip.

    YUM! I think that I would regret making those! lol.. The cinnamon chips are hard to find, in CA I’ve found them only at Winco. Do you have them in AZ? I have an extra bag I would be willing to sell! j/k ;)


    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes replied on May 27th, 2011 at 12:43 pm

      haha I know they need to put them in more stores! Only at Albertson’s in AZ.

    I’d like to invite you to link-up with Sweet Tooth Friday. I hope to see you there. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/05/26/lemon-chocolate-cupcakes/

    Ok, so these look soooo good & I decided to make them. Well, I have never heard of cinnamon chips but I saw cinnamon sugar crystal things and used those….well, lets just say that did NOT go over well!! When I mixed it all together the whole mix turned pink and they are very sweet! Not bad but not what yours are like I am sure :) Ha! Oh well, you live & learn!


  12. Tiffany posted on June 7, 2011 at 3:44 pm (#

    those look so yummy! now I’m craving something sweet :)


    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes replied on June 7th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

      I know.. they are so good! I’m craving something sweet too. Hmm maybe i’ll pull out the batch from the freezer. ;)

    Cinnamon Chips are a Holiday seasonal Item.
    They are real hard to find out of season.
    I found them and bought 5 bags to store in my freezer.
    My wife never heard of them either.
    I let her taste a few Cinnamon Chips, and she begged me to make some Cinnamon Raisin
    Oatmeal Cookies.
    i will use 1 Cup Unbleached Bread Flour and 1/2 cup Wheat Flour.
    (Regular Bleached Flour is unhealthy)
    I will also use the Regular Old Fashion Cooking Oats.
    they are much more healthy than the Quick Oats.
    I agree with the ungreased pan. Greasing the pan causes the cookies to spread out
    instead of rising up. I use a special nonstick cookie Sheet.
    I will also try a little trick I use when I make Blueberry Pancakes.
    My wife loves them! They are her favorite!
    I will separate one of the eggs and whip up the egg white to fluff up the cookie.
    It works great with pancakes, I will see what it does with cookies?
    I will definitely adhere to the 10 min baking time,
    It is so important to avoid over baking cookies. (Dry hard cookies)
    Thanks for the great recipe..

    These look yummy. I’ve never seen cinnamon chips before. In which Albertsons did you find them at


    • Jamielyn replied on March 29th, 2012 at 10:13 am

      I found them at my Albertson’s here in Goodyear, AZ. But I’ve seen them in CA too. They are delicious!

    I like all your cookies  recepeis


  17. Andrea posted on October 21, 2014 at 2:07 pm (#

    I live in the Midwest and usually purchase my cinnamon chips at the Dutch Bakery markets. Never fails…any Amish store will carry them!  I put then in my pancake batter.  My boys LOVE pancakes this way!


    • Jamielyn replied on October 22nd, 2014 at 12:29 am

      Mmmm I need to try them in pancakes now! Thanks for the idea. :)
