If you’ve been reading my recipe posts for some time now, you will have read about my obsession with these chips or my obsession with cinnamon in general! I know I’ve posted it a million times on Facebook, and I’ve even had friends searching for them, but I was never able to find them. Until now.

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Last month, I went shopping with my best lady friends in Buffalo. We usually make the drive a few times a year and every time we do, I will hit up the baking aisle in every store we visit (if there is one!) And, finally, after a few years, I found them!

These cookies had to be made. In fact, Dear Reader, I bought enough to make some other recipes too, but today’s post is all about these deliciously chewy cookies!

What are cinnamon chips?

Much like a chocolate chip in shape, they are a confection used for baking. They don’t melt or get extra soft and gooey like a chocolate chip when being baked though.

They have a great cinnamon and sugar flavour and are the perfect burst of texture and taste in baked goods. I love them in cookies, obviously, but they are so great in scones, cakes, or even just on top of some ice cream.

Where can I find them?

Oh, isn’t that the million dollar question!!!! I’ve been told that they stock them at Walmart, although, I’ve never been able to find them there. I found mine at Target, but after a few years of looking at Target every single time I went, it was just this last time that they were in stock.

You can also find them online. I see from a quick internet search that Amazon has them and can ship them right to your door. During that internet search though, I found an article that suggested Hershey’s has discontinued them. I certainly hope not!

If all else fails, you can make your own. I’ve never tried making my own and I can’t vouch for how great they are, but just in case, here’s a link to a homemade cinnamon chip recipe.

Conclusion:

If you’re able to get your hands on them, stock up. Buy lots, but be sure to check expiry dates first before you spend your money on chips you won’t be able to use up in time.

Lastly, if you cannot source them and you do not want to make them, then you can certainly substitute them with regular chocolate chips or just leave the chips out completely. You’ll still have a very tasty oatmeal cookie!
