Chewy Oatmeal Caramel Chip Cookies

I used Kroger brand Salted Caramel Chips and they were delicious, however – next time I’d love to try this recipe using a bag of Kraft Caramel Bits because I’ve heard they’re amazing too!


These cookies rock! The pictures don’t do them justice.

I loved that they were very simple to make with easy ingredients. My kids liked helping out and we all enjoyed the taste and texture very much. Nothing beats a delicious cookie as a treat, and this recipe is a winner!

These would make a yummy housewarming gift! Enjoy.

    I’m so excited to try these. I’m attending a cookie exchange on Weds and didn’t know what to bring. I’m so bored with my standard recipes.

    • Lina D

      Oh how fun! Enjoy Rochelle! 🙂

  2. SquishyShelli

    Those sound absolutely amazing, Lina! Thank you so much for sharing, I can’t wait to try them!

    • Lina D

      Yay – ENJOY 😉

  3. Mary

    Do you really mean oatmeal? Not raw oats?

    • Lina D

      Yes thanks for catching that! fixed.

  4. DealAddict

    Have you tried these (or any cookies) with gluten free flour? It’s my 1st gf Xmas & I hate to miss out on all the goodies

    • K

      I’ve been told by many people that the brand Cup4Cup gf flour is amazing. They say you can’t tell the difference. I’m gf(thyroid issues)and getting ready to order some.

    • Mindy

      I LOVE the King Arthur measure for measure gluten free flour! I do a straight substitution in regular recipes. I really love all of the King Arthur gluten free products, much less gritty and dense than others

      • Lina D

        Thanks for sharing!

      • Marcia

        If you are Celiac you will need to use certified gf oats also. We use Bob Red Mill

    • CarrieB

      When baking GF watch out for sorghum flour. It has a gritty texture and unpleasant taste. Millet flour works well in sweet recipes. I normally mix it with rice flour, tapioca flour, and potato starch. Sometimes you can make your own GF flour mixture a lot cheaper than the name brands 😊. Happy baking to you!

      • Lina D

        Thanks for sharing!

    • Dee

      My first Christmas gf too after a very recent celiac diagnosis – so happy to see these comments. i’m sure similar ones were always there but i’m now hyper tuned into it. i saw the recipe and it looked yummy and i was thinking i wonder how it will be with gf ingreds.

    • Mommyof71987

      My first GF and DF Christmas too…..I love Bob’s red mill 1 to 1 flour as well to substitute in baking. Have a Merry Christmas!

    • Cressie

      I’ve used Better Batter flour (GF) . They also sell some other GF products as well. They are a small, family owned business.

  5. Meg

    I just love all your posts Lina, thanks so much for sharing with us!

    • Lina D

      That is so SWEET Meg- THANKS 🙂

  6. Nicole

    Awesome…only thing better would be to put in chocolate chips too! ;). Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Cindy

    If used vegan caramel chips how much different would the taste be from salted caramel chips? Could I make those salted?? Lol. Want to try but need dairy free

    • Lina D

      I’m sure those sounds similar!

  8. kahila

    I have just 3 words for this recipe….OMG…i can’t wait to try

    • Lina D

      Ha ENJOY! 🙂

      • Julie

        Lina I cannot wait to try these. Have you ever tried 10 Cup Cookies, they have oats in them too.

        • Lina D

          No sounds awesome though!

          • Julie

            • Lina D

  9. Cc

    Looks good!

  10. niki

    Hi i am wondering so the cookies after sometime taste and texture same I mean for me it became dry and hard 😔😔my kids didn’t like it.
    Plz share some tips .
    Thanks girls

    • Mandi Trefcer

      If you have cookies that become hard, put a slice of bread into the bag or container with the cookies for a few hours or even overnight. The cookies will return to a nice moist and chewy texture.

      • Lina D

        Thanks for the tip! Great idea.

    • Lexy

      When you store them add on a sliced apple to keep its moisture

      • Lina D

        Great tip thanks!

  11. Jen

    Excited to try these. I’m supposed to brimg cookies for christmas. I was going to make one traditional and one new one.

  12. Rebecca

    Anyone see these baking chips in a store?

    • Lina D

      Mine are actually the Kroger brand – hope that helps 👍🏻

    • Lisa

      If you have a H y-Vee (Midwest kinda store), I just picked some up there.

    • Thriftymama

      My Walmart and albertsons have them in the seasonal baking usually. Hershey’s sea salt caramel chips are the ones I use 😊

  13. Andrea

    Lina! These are not low carb! 😭

    • Phyllis C

      Nowhere in the post does it say that they are low carb. They are cookies, a treat, they aren’t going to be low carb.

      • Andrea

        I was kidding 😉. If you follow Hip2Save you know Lina posts a lot of low carb recipes.

    • Lina D

      LoL nope!

  14. Mama

    Yum! Gonna make these…Thanks!

  15. Wende

    Hershey’s makes Sea Salt Caramel baking chips. They were in the baking aisle along with all the other baking chips. I found them at my Meijer in Aurora. Happy Holidays 🎄

    • Lina D

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing 👍🏻

  16. niki

    Thank you Mandy and lexi..appreciated your reply will surely try .
    Thank you girls 💟

  17. Amie

    YUM

  18. DealAddict

    Make sure to use parchment paper or silicone baking sheet. The original recipe states that these get stuck to a regular pan. If I hadn’t read that, I might have tried to skip the parchment paper. Sounds like it’s an important detail!!

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      Wait, doesn’t everyone bake their cookies using parchment paper or a nonstick cookie sheet at least?

  19. Nina

    Lina, my late mother shares your name and around this time I especially love to see these posts.. bcus she also shared a love for cooking 🙂

    • Lina D

      Ah that’s so sweet. Merry Christmas 😀

  20. Jannel O

    Yum! I need to try these! Thanks for posting Lina!

    • Lina D

      Thanks for reading!

  21. Sara

    Lina- thanks for this recipe. I have a neighborhood women’s group cookie exchange next week and I now know what I’m going to make. They sound delicious. Can’t wait to try them!

    • Lina D

      Great thanks! Enjoy your exchange 👍🏻

  22. SM

    Can’t wait to try these. Thank you!

  23. riss

    Do you think I can use Apple sauce in place of egg? My son has egg allergy.

    • Lina D

      I haven’t tried that personally, but seems like a popular baking substitution online! I think it’s worth a try. I know a lot of our readers have recommended this substitution — tablespoon ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water; let stand 1 minute before using. Hope that helps!

    • Hellfire

      If it’s an egg allergy to chicken eggs, have him tested to see if duck eggs are safe for him. Studies show that those allergic to chicken eggs can tolerate duck eggs.

      • riss

        Thank you both!

  24. Love from Munchkintime.com

    Omg! These cookies look & sounds amazing! Planning to make them for my neighbors this year as a Christmas gift!

    Last year I made Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies http://www.munchkintime.com/coconut-oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies/ They were a crowd favorite!

    This year I am going to try something new and this recipe sounds like I have found what I was looking for! Thank you for sharing!

    • Lina D

      Oh yum! Sounds amazing – you’ll love these I think. Enjoy 👍🏻

  25. Mel R.

    These look really good! And something different to bring to our family holiday party. My mom and I are the ‘dessert ladies’ LOL, so I am def gonna add these to cookie bar.

    • Lina D

      Oh a cookie bar sounds amazing! Thanks Mel 👍🏻

  26. Danelle

    I found the baking chips at Target today. Can’t wait to try them. We love a recipe that’s similar but calls for butterscotch chips.

    • Lina D

      Yay! Enjoy 😉

  27. Dawn Hungate

    Do these freeze well?

  28. KMS

    Has anyone made these yet? I’m about too tomorrow so was curious. Your recipes are great Lina but it’s always fun to read others opinions too.

    • Lina D

      Oh sure! This recipe is actually Bryn – Collin’s sister’s favorite. It was submitted by her for me to try! So fun.

    • Elle

      Yes! Made them the day this was posted lol. Making them again tonight. They were good. ☺️

  29. April

    Is it 2 sticks of butter AND 1 cup? Or 2 sticks of butter, which makes 1 cup? I wanted to be sure 😅

    • Lina D

      just two sticks! Thanks 🙂

  30. MamaBear5

    Hi, do you use the kosher salt both in the recipe and for topping after baking? Or is it regular salt for baking and the kosher for topping? Also, I had of butterscotch chips, that needed to be used. Hope it turns out good too!

  31. Amanda

    These were delicious! I used the caramels but had to buy from Amazon, couldn’t find them at Kroger. Going to try again with salted caramel chips and a batch without because the cookies alone were YUMMY!

  32. rebecca

    I had hoped to make these with our Christmas cookies, but couldn’t find the salted caramel chips and I finally found them at Walmart today! Cannot wait to try…hurry up and soften, butter! Thank you for the recipe, Lina! 🙂

    • Lina D

      Aw that great! Enjoy ❤️

  33. Lizchatwell

    Will this make 3 dozen? 4?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Made 36 cookies for me.

  34. Katie

    I made these last night and everyone that has tried them has raved about them! This recipe needs a bump for this year. It’s definitely going into our cookie rotation. Thanks for another great recipe!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! That is so great!

  35. Sierra C

    I’m not usually a fan of oatmeal cookies, but I made this to add variety to the cookies I’m giving my mom, who doesn’t eat chocolate. I gave it a try, and I’m blown away! Absolutely delicious, might be my new favorite cookie recipe!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay that’s so fun to hear! Thanks Sierra!
