Yummy Oatmeal and raisin cookies just like mama used to make

Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

These cookies took a few times to get right (the first couple ended up like rock cakes but they tasted amazing every time)

The biscuit tin is always full in this house!

Our Tardis Biscuit Tin

Unfortunately it is not bigger on the inside, like the ACTUAL Tardis! but we like to keep it well stocked anyway! – this recipe is perfect and these cookies are full of energy, filling and tasty so they are perfect on the go! Plus they are a little healthier than chocolate chip!

So, even though I haven’t mastered the perfect oatmeal and raisin cookie shape, I’ve got the taste sorted!


Ingredients amounts

110g Butter

110g Caster Sugar

110g Muscovado Sugar

110g Raisins

110g Self-Raising Flour

250g Porridge Oats

1 Egg

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 tbsp Water


  1. Pre – heat oven to 180 degrees
  2. Line two trays with greaseproof paper
  3. Beat together the butter and both sugars
  4. Beat in the egg
  5. Stir in the water and vanilla extract
  6. Stir in the oats, flour and salt
  7. Mix in the raisins



The Mixture should look something like this....
The Mixture should look something like this…

Use two spoons to create small ball shapes onto the lined baking trays.  Spread them out evenly as they expand and flatten as they cook (The rule is, the bigger the ball the bigger the space in between)

Making your oatmeal and raisin cookies

*(Try to keep them smaller than golf balls – if you make them too big they turn into crumbly rock cakes – if this happens have it with yogurt or ice cream instead– nomnomnom)*

Place in the oven for 15 – 20 mins (I find 18 mins is the sweet spot for me)

Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool


This batch makes around 20-30 depending on the size of cookies you want!

    I’ve been on an oatmeal cookie binge lately. They’re just the best! Although, hubby and I can’t bring ourselves to eat raisins. Maybe, if I give them a try I’ll switch it out with chocolate chips or nuts. Plus, I LOVE your graphic for the ingredients. SO COOL!

    I love these cookies. So simple to make. I would quite happily leave my 5 yr old to do these.

    As for my favourite cookies – hmm! I think you have to go a long way to beat an M&M cookie or a plain oaty one!
