Oatmeal Cookies (A to Z)

Mmmm. I LOVE a good cookie! I make a mean chocolate chip butterscotch cookie. It's fantastic! But it's time to spread my wings. Try new things. Get a little bold! Okay, not really all that bold. But new to me. Oatmeal cookies! Can you believe I've never made an oatmeal cookie? And I love these things!

Running short on time to figure out my O post I raided my kitchen and realized I had everything I needed to make these suckers! Perfect! 

They were really easy to make and turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself. I was running a little short on raisins so I threw in a handful of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mix. Yeah, that's my excuse and I'm so sticking to it! 

Will definitely be making these again one day. 


1/2 cup plus 6Tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup raisins
and a handful of chocolate chips ;)

Preheat oven to 350. Makes about 4 dozen cookies. Total time 15 minutes

  • In large bowl beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
  • In separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well then add into wet mixture 
  • Add oats and raisins to the mixture and mix until well combined
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets
  • Bake 8-10 minutes until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet then transfer to wire rack to cool.


  1. Oatmeal cookies! One of my favorites. Thanks for the recipe... I am going to try it this weekend.


    1. Hope you like em Mandy. I just snuck another one :) The little bit of chocolate in them is such a nice treat!

  2. That picture looks so delicious. I have not had oatmeal cookies in a long time but you definitely have me craving them. I'm gluten free though so I have no idea if it is even possible to make.

    1. I saw a couple recipes out there for gluten free. They didn't seem all too different so would probably be just as yummy!

  3. Oh, these look so great. Oatmeal Raisin cookies are probably my favorites. This recipe looks really easy too, so I will definitely be trying it. Thanks so much for the great recipe. :)

    1. No problem June. They're so good. I had one for breakfast and it was just perfect!
