These cookies are delicious, and you don’t feel quite as bad eating them since there’s a bit of healthy oatmeal in there! This recipe was adapted from King Arthur Flour’s 2015 Recipe of the Year.
- 1 cup (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg (room temperature)
- 1 large egg yolk (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt or 3/4 teaspoon regular table salt
- 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup raisins (if you don’t like raisins, you can add an extra 1/2 cup of chocolate chips)
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line several cookie sheets with silicone baking sheets or parchment paper.
Beat together the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla one at a time, beating mixture after each. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to bowl, beat well. Add oats and beat well. Stir in the chocolate chips and raisins.
Using a cookie scoop (depending on the size of cookie you want), drop rounded scoops onto the cookie sheet. A tablespoon scoop will make about 54 cookies.
Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes until the edges are slightly browned. Allow the cookies to set for a few minutes on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
