Baked Healthy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe With Quaker Oats

Updated on December 8, 2017

I grew up watching and helping my mother make homemade cookies. They were always in our school lunch boxes. Here, I share some family faves.

Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

Since it is the holiday season and many people are cooking and baking special recipes to share or give as gifts, I thought that I would share a healthy oatmeal cookie recipe with you that came from my grandmother. It uses the old-fashioned Quaker oats, not the quick-cook kind, nor the instant.

Why did I label this a healthy oatmeal cookie? Despite the fact that it does contain shortening and sugar, it also has a proportionate good amount of the old-fashioned oatmeal and also nuts and raisins, all three of which have health benefits.

Obviously sugar substitutes could be utilized for people who are diabetic or need to watch their sugar intake for one reason or another.

But for people who wish to indulge and enjoy an occasional cookie I can highly recommend these delicious Quaker Oats oatmeal cookies.

Many people would have these simple ingredients on hand in their pantries and this oatmeal raisin cookie recipe is easy to prepare.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cut brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • (I added 1 teaspoon cinnamon to this recipe and also a handful of raisins.)

Directions:

  1. Cream the shortening with the sugars, egg, water and vanilla. Beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the flour to the creamed mixture and fold in the oatmeal and nuts.
  4. Form into small balls and place on greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. I find that if you chill the batter for an hour or so in the refrigerator it is easier to form into balls and becomes less sticky. These cookies bake well in a convection oven...just watch the timing. They bake in about 11 to 12 minutes...but every oven is different.

Health Benefits

There are many health benefits to eating oatmeal, raisins and walnuts.

  • Oatmeal has the effect of lowering the risk of heart disease by providing soluble fiber which lowers the LDL cholesterol which is the bad kind. It also provides many vitamins and minerals and is a good source of protein.

  • Nuts like walnuts, also help to lower the LDL cholesterol thereby helping to lower heart disease. Nuts also provide a good source of fiber and protein and contain the good fats called omega 3.

  • Raisins are cholesterol and fat free and provide iron and potassium along with fiber.

So while most cookies are not exactly listed as health foods, at least these Quaker Oats Oatmeal Cookies with the added raisins and walnuts boost the health benefits as compared to other types of cookies that simply contain refined white flour, sugars and spices.

You can afford to indulge yourself and have an occasional cookie like this on occasion.

If you like this cookie recipe, please put some stars on it. Thanks!

Quaker Oatmeal Cookies

For many years my mother and I worked together in making tried and true cookie recipes for gift giving purposes during the Christmas season.

Sometimes we would try a new recipe and would add it to our list if we liked it. But for the most part, many of these recipes date back many years and even to past generations from which they have been handed down.

Several years ago I continued that baking tradition but no longer had the company and helpful hands of my mother as she had passed on to the next life.

Cutting back to only 10 different kinds, the tins that are now readied to be given away still have a nice assortment.

Since these Quaker oatmeal cookies have been made as a part of the gift assortment for numerous holiday seasons...and before that filled lunch boxes when we kids went to school decades ago...many sweet and nostalgic memories go into making of them each year.

Hope you enjoy baking these healthy oatmeal cookies for your loved ones or bake some Quaker Oats oatmeal cookies to give away as gifts. I'll bet that you get compliments and smiles!

Do you enjoy making homemade cookies and giving them as gifts?

        I do not eat cookies on a regular basis but my husband enjoys eating about one a day. So I do bake these oatmeal cookies quite often for him. We freeze most of them and just thaw a small number at any one time.

        Yes please. I have made oatmeal cookies many times using Quaker oats...have not made any in about three years. I do have a box of Quaker oats in the fridge though because I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast often. Of course I am drooling looking at these. YUMMMMM Angels are once again coming your way ps

        Hi Patricia,

        Oatmeal cookies are right up there as far as a favorite for me also. I am sure your grandson Jay will like these. Hard to believe but Thanksgiving and then Christmas will soon be here!

        Good morning Adore these cookies and make them by the recipe on the box often but I adjust the sugars as I often feel they call for much more than is needed. They are my grandson Jay's favorite.

        I did not compare your recipe to theirs ...it is of little import to me....I will use your recipe this month when I make my first batch of the season...I take them on Thanksgiving Day (and Christmas) as a special treat.

        Hoping all is good with you...once again much love is coming to you and yours via the precious Angels. ps

        Just wanted to let you know I made cookie bars from this basic recipe last Saturday. They turned out great! At first I thought they weren't quite as I wanted them, but after letting them cool off and putting then in the frig, I had some again a few hours later. Removed a couple of bars from the pan and nuked them in the microwave for 20 seconds to get them warm again, and they were scrumptious!! I love them.

        I changed the recipe up slightly. I added the cinnamon as you suggested, doubled the brown sugar to 1 full cup, and substituted the shortening for a half cup of cooking oil -- I used olive oil. I also added another tsp of vanilla (total of 2 tsp), and used 2 eggs instead of just one. I sprinkled granulated sugar on top of the batter after spreading it in a greased 9x11 pan. Spreading the batter was a bit of a challenge, but with patience it worked just fine. Baked for 19-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Excellent!

        Hi peachpurple,

        I would just wait until you have an egg to try this recipe. Not sure that mayo would be a good substitute for an egg in this recipe. Sorry it took so long for me to respond back. Wishing you a happy holiday season and new year. Hope you enjoy this old fashioned and tasty cookie recipe.

        Hi Brett,

        You are living without an oven? I guess from what I have read about where you are living, the food is so good, inexpensive and readily accessible that ovens are not that great a necessity. Must be nice. I think that I would miss mine, however for such things as these homemade oatmeal cookies. Thanks for the votes and shares!

        I got the idea from Alton Brown to make oatmeal cookies using homemade oat flour instead of all-purpose flour. You just take some of your oats for a spin in your food processor. It makes them even better for you and it gives them an even more "oaty" taste.

        A lot of love goes into preparing each batch of cookies. I agree they are very healthy and very delicious. I feel your emotions about your lovely and precious mother. A great recipe and a wonderful hub.

        Hi Peggy,

        Thanks so much for passing down this family recipe for oatmeal cookies. I'm glad you are carrying on a scaled down version of your cookie baking tradition despite your Mother's passing this year. I'm sure the memories were bittersweet but I'm sure it wouldn't have felt right not doing any baking as your family loves the cookies so much.

        Thank you also for pointing out the cholesterol lowering effects of the oatmeal and walnuts ingredients and I'd like to remind people of the obvious- that adding the walnuts to a bowl full of oatmeal for breakfast is also very effective and has less calories. A 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon also lowers cholesterol. My own cholesterol levels dropped 30 points when I made the above part of my daily routine.

        Hello agusfanani,

        Oatmeal cookies for breakfast? I guess that these healthy oatmeal cookies would be as nutritious as those bars that people buy to have on hand for quick nutrition. As to baking them, that is the easy part. Hope you like them!

        Hello Prasetio,

        Happy to hear that you liked this healthy oatmeal cookies and baking hub. I don't know if the brand Quaker Oats is in your side of the world, but any old fashioned oats will do just fine in this recipe. Thanks for your visit and vote.

        Hi dahoglund,

        Understood! Sometimes there is just not enough time in the day to squeeze another thing in...like baking oatmeal cookies to give as gifts. Glad my baking is done for the season! I have people who expect them every year since this is now a tradition.

        I've never seen that size Quaker oatmeal, but we don't have Costco, in fact I have never been to one.However, oatmeal is pretty much generic.Rose does not bake. I have tried it occasionally but I do not want another chore added to mine.

        Peggy, Those cookies look good. I have an oatmeal cookie recipe that I have used for some time now after trying dozens of recipes that I my husband adores but I think your hub was very well done. The pictures are great and the instructions are clear.

        Hi dahoglund,

        We buy the large Quaker Oats oatmeal (100 portion size) at Costco and it is a bargain purchasing it that way. Comes in two bags inside the large box and as the oats are dry, they keep well. You are I are of an age that we remember "free" things like plates, glasses and such being inside of boxes of purchased items. Those days are long gone! Ha! Do you or your wife do no baking? Bet you would like these healthy oatmeal cookies if you gave them a try!

        I have a recipe for muesli cookies that is somewhat similar to this. But this sounds even better, really! Will give it a try soon - just need to get some oats!

        Thanks for sharing

        Love and peace

        I use old fashioned oatmeal for breakfast but do not buy the name brand.I wonder what ever became of Mother's Oats back when I first got married they sold it with a piece of tableware like a plate or saucer in it. Your cookies sound good. I think my mother made oatmeal cookies.
