Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Perfectly delicious combination of oatmeal, raisins and semi-sweet chocolate chips. One of my family’s favourites care of Martha Stewart.

Recipe below makes 24 (3″ diameter) cookies when using a medium cookie scoop. Double the recipe for 48 cookies.


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher (coarse) salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 6 tbsp cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1  1/4 cups old fashioned (large flake) oats
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside until ready to use.
  3. With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  4. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  5. Add flour mixture to batter and beat until just combined, then add oats, raisins, and chocolate chips and combine until incorporated.
  6. Using a medium cookie scoop (1 1/2 tbsp capacity) drop 12 portions of batter onto each baking sheet.
  7. Bake until cookies have spread and are golden brown and soft to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
