Let’s dive into the recipe!


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup raisins (soaked in warm water and blotted dry)

Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Mixing bowls

Hand or stand mixer

Baking sheet lined with parchment paper


Cream the Butter and Sugars:

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes on medium speed).

Add Eggs and Vanilla:

Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt.

Gradually add the dry mixture to the butter-sugar mixture, mixing until just combined.

Fold in Oats and Raisins:

Stir in the old-fashioned oats and soaked raisins.

Optionally, add chopped walnuts for extra crunch.

Chill the Dough:

Cover the dough and chill it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Chilling helps prevent spreading during baking.

Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).

Shape and Bake:

Scoop 2-inch balls of dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 13-14 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
