Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are so easy to make and delicious, best of all, it’s soft, chewy and loaded with raisins. We love to eat it cold straight from the fridge!

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Woohoo! It’s friday and our house had a significant “Christmas” makeover over the last few days. We’ve put up the Christmas tree, we have a nativity set over Twinkle’s cabinet in the living area, and our good ole’ little Santa Clause is standing upright beside the tree. We have our Parol on the bedroom window. And we are putting up Christmas garlands and stockings on the stairs today which signifies we are finally done with decorating. Yay!

We still have a loooong way to go, though. We have gifts to wrap, places to be, people to hug, a birthday to plan (gasp! mine!) and more Christmas planning to do. But first things first. THIS Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Our December coffee needs a partner, after all

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

peanutbutter and I are such huge fans of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Because it has rolled oats (and raisins, instead of chocolate chips) we think it’s healthier than the usual cookies. *wink*

This cookie starts off by combining all purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Then the butter and sugars are creamed. We add in an egg, vanilla extract, and the flour-cinnamon mixture. After that, in goes the old-fashioned rolled oats and the raisins.

It’s best to refrigerate the cookie dough before baking to allow the flavors to blend in and to prevent them from spreading itself thin while baking. We want these cookies thick, remember?

You may bake it for 10 minutes if you prefer softer cookies but I find baking it a bit more for 12-14 minutes just right. It’s cooked a little toasted and provides the perfect chewiness.

Then in goes in the fridge. 

Yes! We love eating it chilled because it tends to get more chewy when cold. It’s perfect with a cup of hot coffee or a glass of cold milk. Whichever you choose to pair it with, I’m sure you’ll love it 100%

  • Author: Peachy Adarne


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Mix together the all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix it well and set aside.


  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar for two minutes until well combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until fully combined.


  1. Slowly add in the flour and mix until fully combined.


  1. Turn off mixer and add in the rolled oats and raisins and mix by hand.


  1. Cover the cookie dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


  1. While cookie is chilling, preheat the oven to 350°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.


  1. After 30 minutes, get your cookie dough from the fridge and using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough and drop onto the prepared baking sheets. Make sure to leave a small space in between cookies as they will spread a little while baking.


  1. Use the round side of the scooper to flatten the cookie dough just a little.


  1. Bake in separate batches at 350°F for 12-14 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly golden brown.


  1. Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.


  1. Serve warm or chilled. We find this best eaten when chilled!

  1. I have been doing so much baking lately but haven’t made oatmeal raisin cookies yet. This looks like such a yummy recipe!

  2. Okay I’ve tried every recipe I could find and they all are dry and hard and they say to .ok at 13 min and I cook for 10.
    So I tried this recipe. I love that you out it in the fridge. It makes it a lot easier to handle. I did add 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon instead of 1 tsp. I also added some extra stuff like 1/2 tsp ground all spice and 1/2 tsp of ground cloves for the taste. I served them as desert and they ate all 30 cookies it made. They asked me where I bought my oatmeal raisin cookies and I said I didn’t buy them, I made them. Ty these are amazing. I especially love the extra ground cloves and ground all spice I added. One of my guess saif it tastes like fall ?
