Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Sweets don’t last too long in this house. Usually because I eat them or I send them to work with my husband, so I don’t eat them. Carlton is not a sweet eater. That is unless we are talking about Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Then all bets are off. 😊

In honor of Carlton’s birthday this week, I am sharing the recipe for the VERY BEST soft and chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. These are so good that I (not a raisin fan) also REALLY like these cookies.

Substitutions and Alternatives

My favorite substitution using this recipe is to add ½ cup white chocolate chips and ½ cup dried cranberries. Adding ½ cup chocolate chips and ½ cup chopped walnuts is SO GOOD!  ½ cup peanut butter chips and ½ cup chocolate chips are another amazing combination. As you can see this recipe is quite versatile.

Nutrition Facts

Oats

Oats are a whole grain that are a great source of fiber! Fiber is a carbohydrate that the body cannot digest, and it passes through the body undigested. Notice on nutrition labels the fiber is separated from the carbohydrate.

nutrition label example

Fiber is beneficial to health. It comes in two varieties:

  • Soluble fiber, which dissolves in water, helps lower blood sugar levels as well as help lower blood cholesterol.
  • Insoluble fiber, which does not dissolve in water, helps food move through the digestive system, promoting regularity and helping prevent constipation.

Most Americans only consume half of the recommended daily intake for fiber.

Tips

Notes: Cold dough is the key to cookies that do not spread too much. Scoop cookie dough and refrigerate balls of dough before cooking or refrigerate dough before scooping and cooking.

Cooking Tip: Oven temperatures differ. Watch your cookies and remove when nicely browned.

To Freeze: Place cooled cookies in a plastic baggie or put cookies in an airtight container. If possible, individually wrap cookies in plastic food wrap. Cookies can be frozen for up to one month.

To Thaw: Thaw the cookies at room temperature and enjoy.
