My husband has been begging me to make chewy oatmeal raisin cookies for months. I finally obliged him and here is the result. I actually scoured the net for a recipe that would work well due to my recent hectic schedule. I wanted something nice and chewy with tons of flavor. Well I definitely found it in this chewy oatmeal raisin cookies recipe courtesy of Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.
I discovered Serena on Yahoo! Shine. We have something in common. We are both Yahoo! Shine Supper Club Recipe winners so I was intrigued by her amazing looking recipes and definitely wanted to try something.
This chewy oatmeal raisin cookies recipe was just what I was looking for. I left out some of the spices because my husband is very plain when it comes to flavors he enjoys. These were awesome, filled with flavor and chewy with the perfect oat texture. I will definitely make these again.
