Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 1

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Serves: 8

Happy Wednesday! I hope you had a great weekend and an even better start to your week! First off, I would like to apologize for not posting any recipes the last few days! I had recipes planned for both Sunday and Monday, but Saturday afternoon something started happening with the access to my blog. I wasn’t able to log in to my site to do anything! I have been on the phone with my hosting company and internet company almost all day since then. Even at this moment, I am still working withe them to fix things! I am hoping I am able to stay in my admin page long enough to post this for you!Β  My poor sister and boyfriend have had to listen to me rant in the interim! (sorry guys!) Aren’t you glad you aren’t related to me? πŸ˜‰

I didn’t want you to think I decided to hop on a plane and go away for vacation again! Although, that would have been nice! No, instead I have been in this beautifully freezing weather in NJ πŸ™‚ Is it summer time yet? πŸ™‚ In the mean time, I have this delicious cookie recipe to share with you! On Friday, a wonderful reader left a comment asking me if I had a recipe for an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. I thought to myself, of course I do! Then I went in search for it on the blog……but I couldn’t find it! I knew I had made some before the holidays. So, I went into my pictures and low and behold, there it was! I had forgotten to share this recipe with you before Christmas! So, thank you to Maria for reminding me about this recipe! If it wasn’t for her I may have forgotten all about these yummy cookies….that I just may have happened to eat some all of! πŸ˜‰

    I understand you are busy. I love the recipes and wait patiently :) I am going to try these today to bake for my mother...but I have limited ingredients. So, I'll have to use instant oats (I hope that is fine), and just regular sugar (I guess its still the same measurement?) and regular honey (not sugar-free). I hope that is not too too sweet. I might only make half (so 4 total) to see if she likes them or not before making a bigger batch (ingredients running low).

        Hi, I ended up using instant oats cause no rolled oats to be found. I also used regular honey and regular white sugar. Also, ran out of greek yogurt, so used some pumpkin , ha . Still turned out great and moistt/chewy anyway! But I'll eat anything. Literally (I just ate 1/4 jar of peanut butter with an entire tub of yogurt at 11 pm...help...seriously :(

        No worries they were worth the wait! Ate my last one this morning, so I thought I would make another batch this morning, only to realize I ran out of almond flour!!! Agh! Anyway, thanks again!

  • Oh YUMMY! I cannot remember the last time I had a oatmeal raisin cookie. I did devour a bunch of chocolate chip cookies on Sunday night. HA! The sweet tooth was a calling...And yes this weather is flat out miserable! ;)

    Would I need to make any adjustments if I took out the maple syrup? And raisins

  • These sound similar to my cinnamon raisin oatcakes, except they're baked- major yum!
