Oatmeal raisin cookies are definitely way up there beside chocolate chip cookies. These are classics for one reason – they are always good whenever, wherever! But this time it gets a makeover with the addition of spices: cinnamon and nutmeg.
I make this recipe for spiced oatmeal raisin cookies a lot because when My Man goes to work during the weekdays in the Metro, I make sure to give him cookies as baon to take care of the munchies. 😉
These spiced oatmeal raisin cookies are very simple and quick to make, you’d be surprised at how good they are. If you have been buying the packaged stuff or the expensive stuff from bakeries, this recipe will definitely change your life for good!
Also, this is a versatile recipe. You can add other mix ins to the cookie batter to make your cookies more interesting. Try adding nuts, chocolate chips, or crushed malt balls for more oomph! Have fun baking. 🙂
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. 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! 😀
