OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE mix in a jar makes a great gift.

by Miriah Kardelis

A mason jar filled with pre-measured dry ingredients, for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. An easy, DIY Christmas gift, where all the recipient has to do is add the wet ingredients and bake.

Mason Jar Ingredients:

1-quart size mason jar

1-1/2 cups flour

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup old fashioned oats, uncooked

1 cup chocolate chips

How to assemble cookie mixture in the mason jar:

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Place flour mixture in the major jar.

In the empty bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon, and stir until fully incorporated. Use the back of a spoon to pack down the brown sugar, in order to make room for remaining ingredients. Add in the white sugar and pack down with spoon. Finish with the oatmeal, and then the chocolate chips. It will be a tight fit, so make sure you are packing down after each layer.

On a gift tag attached to the jar, write down the additional ingredients needed as well as the baking directions:

Wet ingredients needed:

3/4 cup butter – room temperature

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350. Add all wet ingredients to a bowl and blend well. Add in dry cookie mixture and combine until dough forms. Scoop dough onto a greased cookie sheet, giving plenty of space between each cookie. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookies are set.
