Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are an old fashioned favorite cookie recipe that is done all in one bowl- super easy and the best Oatmeal cookie you will EVER have.
Very easy to make and are the perfect addition to your holiday cookie tray! Thanksgiving or for Christmas!
Its such a easy one bowl cookie recipe that you are going to be making over and over again!
Dont want to use Applesauce? 1 egg can be substituted for the ¼ cup applesauce. With these cookies- always be careful not to overbake. Cookies should be lightly browned.
Raisins and white chocolate chips can be omitted if a plain oatmeal oatmeal cookie is preferred.
Can I substitute rolled oats for the quick oats?
No, not in this recipe. The quick oats are thinner and will cook more quickly and give a softer texture versus the Old-fashioned rolled oats that would make the cookies chewy.
Can I freeze these cookies?
Yes, you can freeze up to 2 months in a freezer bag.
How do I store these cookies?
Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Do you like chewy or softer cookies? these are a perfect combination of both! For a chewy cookie, just bake them right away in the oven. For a softer cookie, let the dough rest in the fridge for a few hours or even overnight.
I added brown sugar for additional added flavor – these are the ultimate cookie!
