  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter unsalted, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup raisins add more to your taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Put the oats in the food processor and pulse a few times until the oats become coarsely ground (not fine).
  • In a medium bowl, add the processed oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix well.
  • In another large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture becomes creamy—about 2 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition.
  • Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in the dry ingredients and the raisins until thoroughly combined. You will have a thick and sticky dough.
  • Use a cookie scoop to drop the dough onto prepared cookie sheets. Leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie dough. (The cookies will spread).
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges become brown. Rotate the pan halfway between for even doneness.
  • Leave the cookies to rest in the pan for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to the cookie rack.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the pan for 5 minutes.
