Whole Wheat Oatmeal, Chocolate, Raisin Cookies

When it's raining outside, one great way to warm up your house is to bake. Somehow, it makes every trouble go away!

The cookies that I made today fit the bill to a tee. They are hearty, healthy, just sweet enough oatmeal cookies.

I made 24 larger cookies (about 3 inches round when baked), but you could make them whatever size is right for you. Don't be alarmed if the dough feels kind dry. Just use your hands to form the balls of dough and then press them gently with your hand. They will turn out just fine!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal, Chocolate, Raisin Cookies
Makes 24 cookies

1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/3 cup White Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 cup Raisins
2/3 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with silpat or parchment paper.
Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just combined. Then stir in the oats, raisins and chocolate chips.
Form the dough into 1.5 inch balls. Flatten onto a baking sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes until golden.

  1. A lot of my cookies have the whole wheat and oats combo too but your ratio is much more toward the oats. I think my family would start a revolution against me if I did that. They complain about having 1 cup of oats to 2 cups of flour now.
