Oatmeal raisin cookies

For some reason I had it in my head that oatmeal raisin cookies were on the slightly more healthy side, at least compared to chocolate chip cookies. That’s not so much the case, but these cookies are still one of my favourites. I haven’t made them in probably two years, and when I realized that I found the opportunity pretty quickly to make them again.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Lots of raisins


Mix softened butter and sugars, add egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients, then add them to the wet. Add raisins.

Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.

These cookies are absolutely delicious and chewy. The best cookies are chewy, I think.

    I think we try to fool ourselves with the oats… More fiber and all. And you just can’t beat the homey feeling they evoke.

    These look great. I stumbled upon an oatmeal cookie recipe with orange drizzle on top, that look amazing too!
