Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookie Mix in a Jar

After years of family members awkwardly asking me for gift receipts and spying my (well intentioned) presents in white elephant exchanges years later, I’ve finally found the holiday gift that’s a guaranteed hit: Homemade Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookie Mix in a Jar.

Cookie Mix in a Jar: Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookies. A great homemade gift ideaNow that Bath and Body Works gift sets are out of style (sun ripened raspberry anyone?), I’ve been searching for a go-to present that’s more thoughtful than a gift card, yet guaranteed to please. The answer: Homemade Triple Chip Cooke Mix.

  • It’s the right size.
  • It’s the right color.
  • It’s budget friendly, but still thoughtful.
  • It can be easily customized to fit taste preferences and dietary needs.

Triple Chip Oatmeal Cookie Mix

Christmas gift idea- Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Mix in a JarI originally intended the cookie mix jar to hold my go-to regular (still fabulous) homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but then I became distracted by other tasty options winking at me in the pantry. The holidays are no time to be skimpy, so I loaded this homemade cookie mix with a combination of peanut butter, semi-sweet, and white chocolate chips.

You could also swap in chopped nuts, dried fruits, and even toasted coconut—just keep the total amount of mix-ins to 1 cup, or you’ll need a second jar.

This Homemade Triple Chip Cookie Mix can also be made completely gluten free by using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour and Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats. As someone who is a bit hesitant to experiment with gluten free baking, I was delighted to find that I could simply swap the gluten free flour for the all purpose flour (same for the oats) in my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, with flawless results. No gluten free guess work!

If dietary restrictions are not a concern, you can use the same amount of regular all-purpose flour (or even white whole wheat flour) and oats in the baking mix.

  8. What an excellent gift idea! I love that it’s food-related, which is, of course, expected from all of us food bloggers, but that it’s not necessarily perishable. And quite economical as well! So cute

  14. I am so bad at coming up with a great gift, but cookies, you can’t possibly go wrong with cookies! Love that you can make so many substitutions for dietary concerns. Great idea, Erin :)

  15. Haha! I see your sun ripened raspberry and raise you a cucumber melon. Or a sweet pea. Memories! This mix is exactly the thing I’d love to see under the tree, and I bet I know a lot of people who would think the same. I might have to gift myself a jar for ..errr testing purposes. :)

  20. Love this!!! Ive gone gluten free so this couldn’t really come at a better time!
    I’ve never tried the 1:1 gf baking flour, but it definitely seems like I need to give it a go instead of the hit and miss with my own flour substitutions!! I’ve actually seen the Bob’s Red Mill in my grocery shop so it’s perfect!

  21. Has anyone made these yet? I think I got all the measurements right but the mixture seemed very dry. I had to really press the dough together in order to get it to stick together enough to put into cookie shape to bake. Once baked, however, the cookies taste really good.
    Other similar recipes I’ve tried have either less flour or more moisture like unsweetened applesauce. I absolutely love the Stir Up Something Good tags. I’ll have to check out World Market.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Toni! Thanks for taking time to leave your feedback. The dough is a bit loose, because there are so many oats and chips packed in. If you wanted it to be a more moist, you could certainly try it with less oats or more butter. In the end though, it sounds like you were happy with the cookies, and I am so glad!

  22. What a great idea of present! I’d love to receive one of theses this christmas. Plus, the cookies just look delicious!
    I’ll try them since I love oatmeal.

    (By the way, I’m french, I don’t remember how I got on your blog but I find it very good with delicious recepies) ! And you know what…. I’m a law student! I try to make a blog of bakery myself, I hope it’ll work.

  23. Erin there is no denying these cookies look fantastic and the packaging is darling too. But I’m so sad about your family gift history! Really? They asked for gift receipts and re-gifted in front of you? It’s like a bad Christmas movie! I’m so sorry. No one will be giving these cookie mixes away I can assure you that!

    • LOL Toni. My family does tend to be pretty direct with the gift feedback, but I suppose it’s good if everyone receives what on their list in the end? Thanks for the vote of confidence on the cookie mix. I’m hoping it’s a hit!

  24. Hello! These look amazing! Does it state what size jar to use and did you pack the powders?!!?!?!? :D i would really love to make these this week!
