Yummy baked oatmeal cookies!
Yummy baked oatmeal cookies!

I love oatmeal cookies, especially the ones with raisins and chocolate chips. It had been a while since I made oatmeal cookies. Today, while organizing the pantry, I noticed there was an unopened container of Old-Fashioned Quaker Oats. Immediately, I thought of making healthy oatmeal cookies for snacking. I knew my husband would love them, too.

This time, I decided to reduce the amount of granulated sugar called for in the original recipe because I added semi-sweet chocolate chips and raisins into the mixture. However, you're welcome to use the regular amount of granulated sugar, or you could choose to replace it entirely. If you'd like to replace it, you could substitute darker brown sugar. I also found that adding a touch of ground cinnamon will make the cookies taste even better. By the way, the aroma of freshly baked oatmeal cookies reminds me of the French toast!

Oatmeal cookies are super easy to make. Make sure to keep the cookies inside an airtight container to preserve the crispiness. By the way, I prefer my oatmeal cookies to be crispy, so I bake them a bit longer in the oven. If you prefer your cookies to be chewy or soft, all you have to do is bake them in under 15 minutes. I hope you will try this recipe. I hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as we do!

Let's see the full ingredients.
