Wet Ingredients:

  • 225 grams (1 cup) butter, room temperature
  • 340 grams (1 3/4 cup) white sugar
  • 200 grams (1 cup) brown Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Dry Ingredients:

  • 240 grams (2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 270 grams (3 cups) oats
  • 225 grams (1 1/2 cups) raisins


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the butter and sugars together until smooth. You can do this by hand, or with a mixer. Whatever floats your boat.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring each one in before the next.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Mix the flour mixture in thoroughly before adding the oats and raisins.
  • When the flour is well combined, add the oats and raisins and mix well. You might want to use your hands here, the dough is pretty thick!
  • Use a portion scoop if you have one, or use two dessert spoons to make golf ball sized cookie dough balls and spread them out on a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Squish the dough balls down slightly to flatten.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the middle.
  • Let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.


  • If you love cinnamon in your oatmeal raisin cookies, feel free to add 1 1/2 teaspoons to this recipe!
