Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. Fold in the rolled oats and raisins or chocolate chips (if using) until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each cookie for spreading.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Enjoy your moist and chewy oatmeal cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage!

These cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for several days, but they’re so delicious, they might not last that long!
