My Auntie Sue made these raisin oatmeal cookies when we were kids and I remember loving them so much that I just had to get the recipe from her. They were also my Uncle Garry's favorite! I have tried a lot of raisin cookies over the years and nothing compares to these. These cookies are, hands down, the best oatmeal raisin cookies I have ever tasted!
Like I said, SIMPLE! All you need for these cookies is:
- quick oats
- brown sugar
- white granulated sugar
- baking powder
🌡️How to Store
Keep these soft oatmeal raisin cookies on the counter (in an airtight container) for 2-3 days or put them right into the freezer! I put them right into the freezer, then I take them out and by the time I go to eat them at work, they are defrosted. Or you can pop them into the microwave for 15-20 seconds to defrost. They will keep in an airtight container or freezer bag in the deep freezer for up to 6 months.
The raisins in these cookies can be switched out for chocolate chips, if you want to mix things up (or are simply having a chocolate craving)!
