One thing I love about oatmeal cookies is how versatile they are. You can make them into almost any flavor cookie with what you add in. These cookies have cinnamon chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips and coffee grounds. Like a cinnamon dolce mocha from Starbucks.

 Coffee grounds in cookie?!? So all over that. I love coffee anything and I have used espresso powder in cookies and baked goods before but never coffee grounds. It takes these cookies to a whole new level of awesomeness.

See those little black flecks? That’s the coffee grounds. At first you may think that they would make the cookies have a gritty texture but that isn’t the case at all, just gives them a nice hint of coffee.  I am seriously adding coffee grounds into cookies from now on. Well, not ALL, cookies, but most.

Cinnamon Dolce Oatmeal Cookies Very slightly adapted from Bake Your Day Coffee and Cream Oatmeal Cookies Makes 3 dozen

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp finely ground coffee (not instant, and not espresso powder)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¾ c cinnamon chips


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare cookie sheets with either silicon bake mats of parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter and let sit for 10 min to cool slightly. You can either melt the butter in a large glass bowl in the microwave or in a pan over the stove and then transfer to a separate bowl large enough to mix the rest of the cookie dough in.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the oats, flour, coffee grinds, cinnamon, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
  • Add the white and brown sugars to the melted and cooled butter and mix by hand until well-blended. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well again. Add the dry ingredients and stir until all is mixed well. Add in the semi-sweet and cinnamon chips and mix either with a spoon or by hand. The dough will be stiff but still easy enough to mix by hand.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop out heaping tablespoonfuls (closer to 2 tablespoons) and place 2” apart on a prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
