Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened grated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup raisins

1. Cream butter and sugar. You can do this by hand or with a mixer. Beat the mixture until light and fluffy or when the color changes to an almost white tinge. Add egg.

2. Combine the rest of the ingredients, except the raisins, in a separate bowl then slowly add to the creamed mixture. Beat well to combine then stir the raisins in.

3. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter into cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes on a preheated 400 F oven. Turn the spiced oatmeal cookies halfway for even cooking. Let cool then eat! πŸ˜€

  1. I make mine with cinnamon but I’ve never thought of nutmeg. Sa tingin pa lang mukhang masarap na. Try ko with nutmeg next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    • i don’t eat raisins too but i don’t mind having them in this recipe. but mentioned, the recipe is flexible you can have any mix in you want. can you tell that to my man? πŸ˜† it’s just that he’s hungry all the time so i try to help. πŸ™‚

    • it’s simple enough, lj. preheating an oven means firing it up at the desired temperature for at least 15 minutes before you put anything in it. this way the oven is nice and warm and ready for action. it is best to preheat the oven before you start working on your recipe so you don’t have to wait for it.

  2. never tried putting raisin on cookies…ayoko ng raisins eh! haha! lagi na lang ako chocolate chips…di ko rin type ang otameal and cashew. haha!

    • i’m not a fan of raisin too, kg, but you’ll be surprised at how raisin changes with this cookie. it becomes something you’d be happy, or at least willing, to eat. the brother of my man even confused the raisin for chocolate chips because they becomes really sweet πŸ™‚
