Oatmeal Cake Mix Cookies

These are a delicious variation on oatmeal raisin cookies.


  • 1 box cake mix (any variety)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (can substitute caramel or peanut butter chips or do a combination)
  • 1/ 2 -1 cup oatmeal (I always put in as much as I can!)
  • 1 /2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/ 2 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
  • nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, blending well. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little water. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute before removing form the cookie sheets.

Yields about 4 dozen cookies.

Note: For altitudes above 3500 feet, add 1/ 4 cup flour to dry cake mix.

Variation: Use white cake mix and add a pudding mix. I added strawberry, for tasty pink cookies. If you use pudding, you will need to add some water (about 1/4 cup). Also, the pudding tends to make the cookies sweeter.
