Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Updated: May 2

Stack of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These oatmeal raisin cookies are soft, chewy, and crispy on the edges. They are delicious, thick, and packed with oats and raisins. They are one of my favorite cookie recipes and are incredibly easy to make.

Preparation and Cooking Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 8


½ teaspoon cinnamon powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1½ cups rolled oats

125g unsalted butter, room temperature

1 large egg

½ cup white granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon baking powder

1¼ cups all-purpose flour or plain

1¼ cups raisins

½ cup brown sugar


Electric Mixer

Baking tray

Cookie scoop


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F(180°C). Adjust the oven racks to center and low positions.

Step 2

Use parchment paper to line a baking tray. Soak raisins in boiled water for about 8-10 minutes. Then drain and pat dry.

Step 3

In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Beat butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugar for 2 minutes or until fluffy.

Step 4

Add eggs in bits and beat well after each addition, until well combined. Add the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon/spatula. Then add the rolled oats and raisins and stir to combine.

Step 5

Scoop the cookie dough with a cookie scoop and place it on the lined baking tray, Roll them into balls and use your hands to gently press down evenly spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes, then alternate the trays between the shelves and turn the trays around.

Step 6

Bake for an extra 10-14 minutes, until the cookies are lightly golden on the surface and golden on the edges.

Step 7

Cool for about 5 minutes on the baking tray before you transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely for about 30 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

1. Do not use steel-cut oats for this recipe. You can use instant or quick oats however they will have a slightly different texture because the oats are chopped smaller compared to rolled oats.

2. To measure the raisins, pack them into a cup and separate them with your fingers.

3. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for about 7 days.
