Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Given the choice, 80% of the time I’ll choose a chocolate chip cookie over any other. That is, until I found this recipe for the most delicious oatmeal raisin cookies. They’re soft, the batter is delicious (always a good indicator) and so easy to throw together. With the holidays coming up these are the perfect gifts to bring to family and friends! If you’re a fan of sweet treats, this board will have you more than covered.

    I’ve never made oatmeal raisin cookies before but I always feel like I’m doing good if I choose one over chocolate chip. They’re kind of “healthier”, atleast that’s what I tell myself!

    I love these so much more than any other cookies and I think it’s thanks to the texture from the oats. Great recipe to have on hand 😉
