I love a spiced oatmeal raisin cookie. This traditional recipe incorporates cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, but feel free to adjust the spice content to suit your tastes. Classic oatmeal raisin cookies may be my favorite but who doesn’t love mini chocolate chips added to their cookies? After I loaded about half the dough onto the baking sheet I added 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips so we could have oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies too!
3/4 cup all- purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Clearly Organic Butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Clearly Organic Granulated Sugar
2 Clearly Organic Eggs
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Vanilla
3 cups Clearly Organic Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup Clearly Organic Raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine white and wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt in a bowl. Stir gently and set aside. Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar with an electric hand mixer in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla then continue beating with mixer. Stir in flour mixture with a wooden spoon. Then gently fold in oats and raisins. Roll dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden on the edges. Let cool for 4 minutes on baking sheet. Store in air tight container.
