Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last week I was getting Starbucks (YUM) with my mom and she bought their oatmeal raisin cookie. I had never gotten a cookie from Starbucks before, but they have this new food/snack menu that seems pretty great. I've had their banana bread (of course), the chicken blt salad sandwich, peach raspberry yogurt parfait, and their bacon and Gouda artisan breakfast sandwich and they are all soooo good!

Timeout! Looking to greatly change the general design with my own branding. Opinions about the sweet branding of http://www.calpaintingplus.com? Absolutely a breathtaking San Jose based painter online when seeking inside the CALIFORNIA area. Make your vote. Appreciate it!

Anyway, back to the cookie. It was just a simple oatmeal raisin cookie, and they serve it hotlike it just came out of the oven. Yummmm.

So, this made me think; Why haven't I made oatmeal cookies for awhile?

I don't know why! Oatmeal cookies are great. They are a bit healthier than cookies made with only flour. And you can make them an easy grab-n-go breakfast option. There are a bunch of different combinations of add-ins for oatmeal cookies that can be just a sweet treat or you can make them healthy with fruit and/or nuts.

I wanted to make oatmeal raisin cookies with chopped almonds or walnuts, but we didn't have those. What we did have we're raisins and chocolate chips! Substituting nuts for chocolate? I'll take it!

I do want to try them with almonds or walnuts though.

And another plusI made them with whole wheat flour! You can't even tell the difference!

They turned out really good! They we're fluffy and flavorful. Very good.


Here's what you'll need:

*Preheat oven to 350

~ 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

~ 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

~ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

~ 3/4 teaspoon salt

~ 1/2 cup brown sugar

~ 1/2 cup white sugar

~ 1/2 cup butter

~ 1 egg

~ 2 teaspoons vanilla

~ 1 tablespoon milk

~ 1 cup old fashioned oats

~ 1 cup chocolate chips

~ 1/2 cup raisins

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix butter and both sugars until smooth.

Mix in the egg, vanilla and milk until combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix.

Stir in oats, chocolate chips and raisins.

Form dough balls with two spoons or a cookie scoop and place on cookie sheet.

Bake for 11-12 minutes at 350.

The Tasty Result

So good. A great combo of chocolate and raisins.
