Raisin Oat Cookies

This recipe for these deliciously thick and chewy cookies is taken from Smitten Kitchen.

Makes 8


  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) Butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 cup Plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Oats
  • 3/4 cup Raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C and place some baking parchment on a baking tray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Now stir this into the butter and sugar mixture. Once combined, stir in the oats and raisins (and walnuts, if using).
  3. At this point the dough should be chilled for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. You can either chill the whole mixture as it is, or drop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and then chill the whole tray before baking them. Allow at least 2 inches to separate the cookies, as they will spread out on baking.
  4. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden at the edges but still a little undercooked-looking on top.
  5. Leave on the baking sheet for five minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
