Make Your Own Easy Homemade Mason Jar Cookie Recipes These Holidays
Ever wondered how to make chocolate oatmeal cookies in a jar? By taking a few extra minutes to divide and layer your cookie ingredients, rather than mixing them, and then putting all in a pretty jar, you’ll have an adorable mason jar cookie recipe for oatmeal chip cookies!
I have seen these mason jar cookie recipes in stores lately, and they are really cute, especially when they are finished off with colorful fabric and ribbon, with a handmade tag. I could not bring myself to buy any of these, though, as I knew they had to be super simple to make.
Sure enough, to make mason jar cookie recipes like this, you just need your basic cookie ingredients, a mason jar, and a little bit of time. This gift idea never gets old, either and you can make lots of flavors.
I like to buy bulk mason jars and make a different cookie flavor every time I make them. Friends and family are always excited to get the latest batch.
I will add crushed peppermints during the holidays, pink sugar and sprinkles for Valentine's Day, different creative colors and ingredient combos for other occasions.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Mason Jar Supplies
- A wide mouth 1 qt mason jar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 6″ diameter cut piece of fabric
- Enough ribbon to make a bow (approx 13″)
- A pair of scissors
- Ice cream scoop (This will help you pack each layer down to ensure all the ingredients fit in the jar!)
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Mason Jar Cookie Recipe Instructions
Step 1. Preparing
Be sure to wash your mason jar before you start. Pour in the rolled oats and pack down using your ice cream scoop.
Step 2. Layering
Now add the white sugar, chocolate chips, and the brown sugar (in that order). After each sugar layer, you'll want to use your ice cream scoop to pack it down a little more.
Finally, pour in the flour, baking powder and salt together.
Hint: You may have to pack the flour mixture down periodically to make sure it all fits.
Step 3. Packing
Once all the ingredients are in the jar, cut your fabric and ribbon to your desired size and length. We cut the fabric into a 6″ diameter circle.
You can place the fabric either underneath the screw top or on top of it. Play around with it to find the look you like best.
Step 4. Labeling
Of course, if you're giving these cookie mixes in a jar for gifts, you need to print out the instructions to make chewy crispy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Make the label with the following baking instructions:
- Preheat your oven to 350º.
- In a medium bowl, mix together 2 eggs, 3/4 cup softened butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
- Grab your jar and pour the entire contents into the bowl and mix well using your hands.
- Place heaping tablespoons of the mix onto a non-stick cookie sheet (about 2″ apart).
- Bake for 12-15 minutes.
