My husband has been begging me to make a chewy oatmeal raisin cookies recipe 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 I adapted from 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 and made a few of the instructions my own. These were awesome, filled with flavor and chewy with the perfect oat texture. I will definitely make these again.
