Yummy Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are some of my favorites. I’ve seen a lot of “updated” recipes over the years for this simple cookie. Some versions use egg whites, applesauce, bananas, artificial sugar or agave, etc..
Those new variations may be absolutely delicious, but I find we still like the old-fashioned version for these oatmeal raisin cookies the best!
I started making oatmeal raisin cookies over 30 years ago when I tried a recipe that was printed on a container of oatmeal. The real stars of this show are the old fashioned oats and chewy raisins! They were an instant family favorite!
I’ve been using the same old recipe I wrote down on a 3×5 card ever since then (and that’s a long time!). It is definitely tried and true!
How Many Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Will this Recipe Make?
The recipe is very simple to make, and will yield about 4 dozen of these delicious oatmeal raisin cookies. They’re golden-brown, chewy, and taste wonderful.
I hope you enjoy these oatmeal raisin cookies as much as I do, too! They’re a tasty snack that are sure to please almost everyone.
