Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This is another delicious and classic cookie that’s simple to make and probably won’t last long in the house. If you’re not a fan of raisins, you can substitute them with chocolate chips.

STEP ONE – Preparations

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F with 2 oven racks in the middle.
  2. Lightly spray 2 large baking sheets with canola spray.
  3. Take out a stick of unsalted butter to soften.
  4. Get out a stand mixer and a medium bowl.
  5. Set up 2 cooling racks.

STEP TWO – Make the Batter


¾ stick unsalted butter
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
¾ cup raisins


  1. In the stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars on medium speed for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  3. In the medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Add the dry to the wet ingredients with the raisins and stir to incorporate without overmixing.

STEP THREE – Bake the Cookies

  1. Drop 18 tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheets and use your fingers to flatten a bit.
  2. Bake for 6 minutes.
  3. Switch the sheets and bake for another 6 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
  4. Transfer the cookies to the cooling racks and cool for 5-10 minutes.

  1. Mmm yum! I love oatmeal cookies. I’d have to substitute for choc chips but it’s still healthy, right? 😉 I’ve never actually made them myself so I’ll keep this one in mind as I wouldn’t mind giving it a go. They certainly wouldn’t last long in the biscuit barrel though! xx
