Chewy, flavorful oatmeal raisin cookies are the epitome of home-baked cookies. These cookies will warm your heart.


  • 240 g. flour (2 cups )
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 226 g. unsalted butter, at room temperature (1 cup or 2 sticks)
  • 100 g. white sugar (½ cup)
  • 210 g. light brown sugar (1 cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 266 g. oatmeal (2¾ cups)
  • 160 g. raisins (1 cup )


  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • In small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and the sugars. Mix in eggs and vanilla until fully combined.
  • Mix in dry ingredients, just until almost combined. Mix in oatmeal and raisins.
  • Shape into cookies, each weighing 30 grams, or use a cookie scoop. If they are too sticky to handle, place the dough in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
  • Cool on pan for at least 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack to cool completely.


These cookies are best baked right away. However, you can make the dough in advance and store it in the refrigerator for up to two days. I prefer to shape the dough into 30 gram balls and store them on a sheet tray in the refrigerator. For best consistency, prior to baking, place the cookie balls on a baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart and allow them to come to room temperature before baking. If you're in a rush, you can bake them directly from the refrigerator, but the baking time will be approximately 10-11 minutes.
