Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

What a beautiful weekend it was! We had a little fog, but for the most part it really did feel like spring time. I did some springtime crafting and I also made some delicious chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, so today I am sharing my  best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. It is an adaptation from a few recipes, changing up the recipe over the years is the best way to make your favorites. These cookies stay fresh for a while and are so good anytime of day.

After modifying several recipes, this really is the best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I have found.

This oatmeal raisin cookie recipe with quick oats can be put together easily and you the cookies freeze well too after baking. It is one of my husband’s favorite cookie recipe.

This weekend we went to our first festival of the season in our new city. It was a lovely day to be outside near the water. We went to a farmers market and found some great spring offerings. I also did some crafting with my mother and I took her some of these cookies in a basket.

For some fun variations:

Oatmeal raisin bars – Press dough into ungreased 13″ x 9″ baking pan. Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool before cutting into squares.

Oatmeal raisin pecan cookies – add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the batter before baking.

How was your weekend?

  1. While I don’t care for raisins, you may make a believer out of me! Looks so soft and chewy!

  2. Oh, yummy! I love oatmeal raisin cookies because I can pretend that they’re almost like granola bars and therefore healthy 🙂

  3. My daughter just told me she loves the oatmeal and raisin cookies we had at church the other day, so I think I need to make them at home! Thanks for the recipe!
