What's For Dessert: Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pin It

At the end of a stressful day, nothing beats a warm cookie (or two, or three) and a glass of cold milk.  These soft and chewy oatmeal cookies are packed with raisins and chocolate chips, and are sure to warm your heart, and put a smile on your face.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup bitter-sweet chocolate chips


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together the softened butter, the white sugar, and the brown sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time.

Add the vanilla.

Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time.

Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda.

Add the oats 1/2 cup at a time.

Add the raisins and the chocolate chips.

Drop teaspoon fulls of cookie batter onto an un-greased cookie sheet.  

Make sure that the cookies are spaced at least an inch apart.

Bake in pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

Allow cookies to cool for a minute or two before removing them from the cookie sheet and transferring them to a plate or cooling rack.

Devour right on the spot, or store in an airtight container.

Love that these have both the chocolate chips and raisins in them. They look so big and toasty-irresistable. I could easily eat a number of these. Delicious.
