Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • Yield: 3 1/2 dozen cookies 1x


  • 1 C butter, room temperature
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 1 C white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 C whole oats
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 1/2 C raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and then scrape down the sides of the bowl before adding the salt, baking powder and nutmeg to mix in. Add the oats, flour and raisins and them mix on low until it all comes together.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, portion out the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are set but the centers are still soft. You want to them seem like they need a couple minutes longer in the oven when you pull them out or they will overcook! Allow them to rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing them to cool completely.
