Soft Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

We love soft chewy oatmeal raisin cookies here at our house and we found that soaking the raisins first adds just what is needed to make the cookies moist and chewy. Oatmeal cookies use to be just a holiday treat but now we enjoy them any time of year. We have tried to change our eating to a healthier way and that includes baking our soft chewy oatmeal cookies and treats so that we control the ingredients. 


We thought we would share our favorite recipe for soft chewy oatmeal raisin cookies with you and allow your family and friends to enjoy them also. But don’t blame us if your family decides they want homemade cookies all the time from here on out. It is a healthier way to keep sweets in your home. 


We like to add coffee with our soft chewy oatmeal raisin cookies.

We thought you might like to add a flavored coffee drink to snack time and we happen to have a list just for you. Check out our collection of coffee drinks here:
