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.

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.

Homemade Oatmeal Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar with Free Recipe Printable. Perfect homemade holiday gift idea.

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.
