Chewy, comforting, and chalk full of oats and raisins, these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are always a crowd pleaser.

Through some dark magic of the internet, my recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies disappeared. A world without my chewy, brown sugar filled, nostalgia inducing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies is not a world I want to live in, so I’m reposting the recipe! Wow, I can be dramatic…

Irony of ironies, my boyfriend, Sam, isn’t really a sweets person. For every dessert I make, he maybe has half a bite, maybe. Last Christmas, I was afraid a batch of my soft caramels wasn’t so soft, so I asked him to test one. He looked like I had asked him to try chicken feet. He took a grain of rice sized bite, shrugged, and said “fine.” Super helpful.

Chewy, comforting, and chalk full of oats and raisins, these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are always a crowd pleaser.

Even though I have to twist his arm to try caramels, there is one sweet that he’s aways game for, oatmeal raisin cookies. I find that lots of people who don’t love sweets always like these cookies. It’s probably because they’re a granola bar that ran from the health club and is now in an open relationship with brown sugar and butter. Half hearty breakfast, half sweet indulgence. 

Chewy, comforting, and chalk full of oats and raisins, these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are always a crowd pleaser.

I never went for oatmeal raisin cookies before. I was more of a chocolate chip or M&M cookie gal myself, but I’ve grown to love their chewy centers and warm cinnamon smell.

Although I tease Sam for his indifference to sweets, it’s the best when I find something he really likes. Rather than his usual half bite, he demolishes these oatmeal raisin cookies. If I can convert a non-dessert lover to love these cookies, then I know my recipe is really good. See for yourself!

Happy Sifting!
