Oatmeal Poppy Seed Cookies Recipe

Cookies are my love language. Not only are they great for snacks, I almost always have a way to turn them into breakfast! My very favorite cookie has always been Oatmeal Raisin. There is just something about the rich taste of butter with the brown sugar and oats that satisfy my soul! I was laying around the other night, flipping through my recipe box and then it dawned on me. So many love the oatmeal cookie base, but not the raisins. Why not switch it up and instead of raisins substitute the one and only Blue Bird Poppy Seeds™. WOW YUM. The nutty quality of the poppy seeds alongside the browned butter is a combination unlike any other. These have truly become a household staple, I hope you all will enjoy these as much as we have!

OATMEAL POPPY SEED COOKIES

Ingredients

  • 230 grams Unsalted Browned Butter (See our Simple Browned Butter Recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 100 grams Poppy Seeds (We recommend our Natural Blue Bird Poppy Seeds)
  • 230 grams Brown Sugar
  • 60 grams Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Eggs + 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Bean Extract (We recommend our Traditional Pure Vanilla Bean Extract)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger

  • 200 grams All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 250 grams Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats

Instructions

Oatmeal Poppy Seed Cookies

While you are more than welcome to use an electric or stand mixer, I’ve found the best method is hand mixing and then chilling the dough overnight.

  1. In a large mixing bowl add the melted browned butter, poppy seeds, and cinnamon. Stir and let sit for several minutes to allow the flavor of the seeds to be expressed by the heat of the butter.
  2. Stir in both sugars, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla bean extract. After these are combined well, add in the eggs and mix until completely smooth.
  3. Finally, add in the flour, soda, salt, and oats. Gently fold these remaining ingredients until the flour is no longer visible.
  4. Transfer the dough to an airtight container and let the dough chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. Once chilled, remove the dough from the refrigerator and line cookie sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350℉. Using a cookie dough scoop, place the dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges and top are set. Leave the cookies on the pans after removing from the oven for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy with a glass of milk or by themselves!

    These are great. Love cookies with oatmeal for the kids and they gobbled these up… well maybe I had a few too 😉

      Melinda – true kids love it. In terms of eating a few, I’ve been there… but I’ll keep a secret.

    I’ve made this recipe multiple times as is and I’ve also made this recipe with raisins as mentioned at the top. Both are quick easy and tasty

    Made this over the summer and I’m making again for friends in town for holidays. These seem to be (relatively at least) healthy and still satisfy that sweet tooth.

      Thanks for the comment, Megan! Glad they satisfied your sweet tooth in a healthy way
