This oatmeal cookie recipe is so good they are some of the best I have tasted.

These cookies are very easy to make and a healthy cookie recipe to boot.

See the tips and variations section below for delicious variations on this classic cookie.

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe



  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Step 1

Cream together butter, sugars, egg, water and vanilla using electric mixer at medium speed. Mix until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Combine flour, soda and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture, mixing on low speed until blended. Stir in oats and raisins.

Step 3

Drop dough by heaping tablespoons full onto greased baking sheets. Press them flat if you want a crisp cookie, or leave them rounded if you like a chewier cookie.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes only until edges of cookies are golden brown.

Makes about 3 to 4 dozen cookies, depending on size.


  • Substitute whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour to create an even healthier Quaker oats oatmeal cookie.
  • Replace the raisins with chocolate chips for a decadent oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.
  • Replace 1/2 the all purpose flour with oat flour to create a healthy oat flour oatmeal cookie recipe.

Oatmeal cookies are a real favorite of kids and adults alike. They are my all time favorite and welcome any time in my home.

Add 1/2 cup of nuts for extra taste and nutrition.

    1/2 cup butter is enough, and skip the white sugar, use only the 3/4 cup brown sugar and reduce the overall amount of sugar and butter for a healthier cookie…Also add a sprinkle of cloves, ginger, a dash of salt for more flavour. I let the batch of raisins soak up an ounce of rum, not much over all that amount of food.

    Personally, I would say the chopped nuts fits better with chocolate-chip cookies, not oatmeal cookies.

    I would highly recommend 2 eggs, not just 1 egg to keep the cookies from crumbling.

    – I swapped out the white sugar and brown sugar for the brown sugar splenda blend (1 cup seems to be best to my taste)

    – I make the cookies big – so set timer to max time of 15 – then check them every 3 minutes (I still like them soft – but cooked through) – often cook time is about 19 minutes.

    – Very easy and simple to make – don’t pull out a big blender – just a hand blender does fine and cleanup is easier.

    – add 1 cup granola and take away 1 cup oats if you want a different taste (super yummy)!
