Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

Every once in a while, I meet an impasse with choosing new recipes to share on this blog.

When this happens, I search and search for what to make next.

I look through my food magazines.  My cookbooks.  Other food blogs.  Anywhere and Everywhere. Ugh.

I pester Dustin to think of something and, without fail, find a reason why not to make everything he suggests.  As you can imagine, he loves it when I do that.

Eventually, just as I decide there will never ever be another recipe I’m interested in.  Ever.  I find something!

This time, I found these chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Tucked away safely in my “Not Yet On Blog” recipe binder was this tasty cookie recipe.  Thankfully.

As soon as I saw it, I knew.  Even the memory of these delicious, simple cookies brought a smile to my face.

To be honest, I’m not usually a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies.  But, with their crunchy exterior and soft, chewy oatmeal centers, even I can’t resist them.  I hope you feel the same.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go figure out what to cook next.

Author: Lacey Baier of A Sweet Pea Chef
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients , and stir to combine.

  4. Using two spoons, drop generous 2-tablespoon sized portions of dough onto the cookie sheets, separated by approx. 2 inches. The larger the cookie, the chewier it will be.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start to turn golden brown. While the edges should be brown, the rest of the cookie should be very light in color and still moist so as not to over-bake. Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes prior to transferring to cooling rack.

  4. niches like parenting, marriage, divorce, conflict and…dating are all highly profitable and are a great start for your blogging career.finally, the category i personally make my living in is the money and finances market. as you can imagine, any niche that helps people to earn more money…

  5. There're two other "golden phrases" that I remember vividly:"我要很多很多的愛,如果沒有愛,那麼就要很多很多的錢,如果都沒有,有健康也是好的。" — quoted from 喜寶"只有上過大學的人, 才有資格說上大學沒有用。" — can't remember which book this is from though.

  6. Alla: Anmälan kommer MED STOR SANNOLIKHET komma upp igen. Just nu har vi cirka 800 anmälda, men vissa är dubbelanmälda och vissa kommer inte betala in. När vi låtit första anstormningen lugna ner sig kommer anmälan antagligen öppna igen ( dock med stor sannolikhet utan sovplats). Panik behöver inte utbryta än. Dessutom kan man alltid jobba på NärCon.

  7. I was skeptical about a recipe from someone who doesn’t like oatmeal cookies but these were terrific. I got a lot more than 24 and they were still large. My recipe tastes great but they often fall apart. Guess it’s the bread flour?Anyway, thanks for sharing.

    1. Lol, Cindy. These oatmeal cookies have made me an oatmeal raisin cookie convert. The bread flour actually should help keep it together, if anything. I find them best if I take them out before the center is cooked all the way through — it should be moist even. Those make for the best cookies.

  8. Found these on Foodgawker. They’re effing delicious. I think I finally found an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe that I like! (I’m going to try an oatmeal/chocolatechip variant next!)

  9. Hi Lacey,
    Are the oats to be added along with the dry ingredients? Looking forward to having these in the kids lunches for next week. Yummy.
