  • ½ cup 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Beat butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add in maple syrup and mix until combined.
  • Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Beat for one minute.
  • Add in old fashioned oatmeal and flour, mix on medium low until well combined.
  • Fold in walnuts.
  • Using an ice cream or cookie scoop, drop scoops of dough onto the baking sheet, leaving 2 inch space between them. Bake in the oven for 11-13 minutes until they are slightly brown on the edges.


  • Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container and keep in a cool and dry place for up to 5 days. You can also place the cookies in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. 
  • Refrigerate the dough: This cookie dough doesn't need to be refrigerated before baking. However if you want to make the dough ahead of time, you can refrigerate the dough for up to one week. When ready to bake, take the dough out of the fridge and proceed with the instructions. 
  • Freeze the dough: Transfer the cookie dough to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 6 months. To bake, thaw the dough in the fridge overnight and follow the instructions to bake the cookies. 
  • Variations: Instead of walnuts, you can use chopped pecans or almonds. You can also add raisins or chocolate chips if desired. 
  • For a gluten-free version, use 1:1 gluten-free all purpose flour.
