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.

  2. Absolutely my favorite cookie.

  3. I do love a good oatmeal cookie! Beautiful photos, Jocelyn!

  4. very nice!!!! yum!!!

  5. We like the spices, but there are definitely people who don’t want ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, etc. in their cookies. :) It’s not plain; just a preference. It’s hard to ruin a classic like this anyways. They look great.

  6. My favorite – and yours look FABULOUS, Jocelyn!!! Beautiful photos! I want to go bake up a batch right now, they look so delicious! Have a wonderful weekend!!! xox

  8. Hi Jocelyn- I am so happy you loved the cookies as much as we do! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  9. Oh my goodness these are the best oatmeal raisin cookies I’ve had! I love how soft and chewy they are!

  10. Holy Hannah these are wonderful cookies. The only change I made was to replace the eggs with egg replacer as my son is anaphylactic. They turned out super yummy, soft and chewy. I made a batch on my silpat and another on my pampered chef bar pan and they came out so much nicer on the silpat. I will def make these again, thank you.
