Oatmeal cookies are one of the simplest cookies to make well. Even grocery stores can do it.

If I ever grab a cookie off a pre-made cookie platter, I always go for the oatmeal raisin cookies because they are the most likely to taste somewhat homemade.

Honestly The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ever!


Even so, there are definite standouts in the oatmeal cookie category. Today I’m sharing The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I’ve ever made or tasted.

Although the ingredients are humble pantry staples, the cookies are ridiculously divine. I’ve been tweaking this recipe for a long time, so I’m very excited to share it with you!

Making The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ever!

The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies cookies are crispy on the outside, and moist on the inside. The oat to raisin ratio is perfectly balanced. A little hint of baking spices accentuates the comforting oat flavor, making them taste the way your very best childhood memory feels.

And best of all, unlike most cookies that dry out over time, The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies seem to improve over time!

Gotta Make - The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ever!

Honestly, my whole family agrees they are even better day-old.

Oats have a distinct ability to hold in moisture. When combined with just the right amount of sugar and butter, oats keep cookies from drying out. That means The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are crisp when they first come out of the oven, but soften after several hours.

    Can I substitute chocolate chips for the raisins? And could I easily add coconut as well?

      Hi Gisselle! Absolutely on both questions. :)

    A great recipe! I wouldn’t change a thing about it. The cookies turned out chewy and moist. Just for fun, I threw in a few craisens and they tasted great. A keeper for sure!

    Your recipe doesn’t include instructions for adding the oats and raisins!

    I really like the nutritional information where it says, “Nutrition Information

    Yield: 45 cookies, Serving Size: 45”

    serving size 45! granted I could try to eat all 45 but I think less would be a more appropriate serving size… LOL! Dang! these HAVE to be good to eat 45 in one sitting! LOLOLOL! gonna try these… but will eat one or two at a time… =D Thanks Sommer!

      Hi Sandy,

      Thanks for catching that. LOL! The recipe calculator we use spits out numbers, then sometimes I have to tweak them to make more sense. Obviously I didn’t notice this one. :)

    Great recipe. My husband is a critic of oatmeal raisin cookies. Haha. My only disappointment was that they were very salty but maybe I accidentally added too much. Just watch the salt! And I was down to only one stick of butter and substituted with a pack of apple sauce with one stick of butter.

    It was scrumptious.

    I take it they would be equally delicious without the cinnamon and nutmeg?
