Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – Deliciously thick and chewy oatmeal cookies that are perfectly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, and loaded with raisins!
I’m not a huge fan of raisins, particularly on their own.
But I LOVE the extra chewiness they give cookies, especially these cinnamon-spiced oatmeal cookies! I brought you this flavour combination first with my Cinnamon Raisin Biscotti (which I hope you’ve been loving!), and now I bring you my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
These oatmeal cookies are soft, super thick, and chewy. They’re perfectly spiced with cinnamon and a little nutmeg, and they are stuffed full of raisins – which adds to the chewiness!
Ingredients for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies:
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Porridge oats
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground nutmeg
- Unsalted butter
- Brown sugar
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
To make these cookies, simply whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined, then fold in the raisins.
Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls (you should get about 20 – 22 balls), and place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Done!
These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are:

To store these cookies, keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
