The Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

I have spent countless hours trying to discover the best recipe for Oatmeal Raisin cookies. My youngest son LOVES them, they are his favorite but after many attempts I didn’t love any of the batches I made.

UNTIL THIS RECIPE!! So far I feel like I nailed it!

Now you be the judge 🙂

  • 1 and 3/4 Cups (1 & 3/4 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 Cup firmly packed organic brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup organic cane sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon of organic raw honey
  • 1-1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash of ginger
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  • 2 3/4 Cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 Cup(s) raisins (I love Trader Joes raisins)

Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed in an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and sea salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Serving Tips:

These cookies are awesome with frosting!

I suggest cream cheese frosting (see below for recipe):

  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together.
