Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



During my wonderful weekend, I decided to make my hubby some of his favorite cookies in the whole wide world! He is absolutely in love with Oatmeal Raisin cookies. I knew that I had the ingredients I needed a recipe. I searched the web and came up with a few recipes that I liked in part but not as a whole. So I decided to borrow from a couple of different recipes and make my own. I didn’t have any baking soda on hand (As someone that likes to bake I’m embarrassed) so I used baking powder instead. The cookies came out chewy which is how my hubby likes them so I guess they’re a winner! Kaylee had a cookie too but it’s ok since she’s under weight for her age and most of the ingredients are organic (that’s how I justify it). Here’s the recipe if you want to try these scrumptious cookies for yourself! =)

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 24
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp apple pie spice (this is a mixture of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Make sure that the racks in your over are adjusted to the middle and lower positions.
  2. Line your baking sheets with parchment and spray with non stick cooking spray. If you have a silicone mat, these work great too.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together. Add the salt and apple pie spice and whisk together.
  4. In another bowl. Whisk the butter until creamy (if you’re using an electric mixer, beat the butter for about 3 minutes on medium speed.)
  5. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Continue to mix until fluffy.
  6. Add the egg and mix until smooth.
  7. Slowly fold the dry mixture into butter mixture.
  8. Add the oats and raisins.
  9. Fold until everything is blended.
  10. Using a 2 tbsp measure, drop the cookies onto your baking sheets leaving about 2 inches in between each cookie. They will spread a bit.
  11. Bake until the cookie edges turn golden brown, about 22 to 25 minutes.
  12. Half way through the baking time, rotate the baking sheets and switch the baking sheets (the top will go to the bottom and vice versa).
  13. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer the cookies with a spatula to a wire rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes. Then enjoy!
I hope you enjoy the cookies as much as we did!
