Not-Too-Oatmealish Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

I don’t know about you guys, but one of my FAVORITE cookies happens to be Oatmeal Raisin. Unfortunately for me they are not a huge hit in my house. I can not explain to you the level of sadness I feel in my heart over this. HAHAHA  Normally I don’t make anything my family doesn’t like or won’t eat.  However, this time I was bound and determined to find a way to bake an oatmeal cookie that everyone would love and enjoy.  This recipe is it. SO good that even my son’s best friend who loathes oatmeal cookies, also LOVES this recipe! So, let’s get on to making these phenomenal cookies!



* 1 cup butter (softened)

* 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar

* 1 egg

* 1 tsp vanilla extract

* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

* 1 tsp baking soda

* 1/4 tsp salt

* 1 cup oats (regular oats used for baking NOT instant oats)

* 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

* 1/2 cup raisins


Beat butter in your mixer until it is fluffy….. then add brown sugar and mix well until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.

Don’t forget to allow your toddler to be in charge of quality control and get a free taste test!

  1. These look amazing, I love the pictures you added! You are so witty and I find myself re watching your videos just to make sure I heard it correctly. I showed the one of the butter hot dogs to my mom and she said she loved your dads response….I laughed and said that is her husband.

  2. These sound & look amazing! My kind of cookie!
    Love the pics of Mason & sidekick Daddy taste testing – Quality Control at it’s finest!

  3. Hi Heather,
    Thanks for the recipe! I made them this afternoon. My family enjoys them. Are they meant to be very thin?

    • they aren’t very chunky but no they’re not thin. Somebody else had an issue with theirs being very moist and sticky…. and it turns out she was using an instant oat instead of a regular oat…. what kind of oats did you use?
