The Best & Easy Organic Oatmeal Cookies Ever!

There’s nothing batter than a good oatmeal cookie and after trying several recipes I finally found the right recipe. The kind of oatmeal cookie that is soft and just sweet enough. I never did thank GotChocolate.com when I won their giveaway for the BON APPETIT DESSERTS COOKBOOK but here it is!  It’s 700 pages of sweet desserts and by far is my favorite new cookbook.

I use organic ingredients but kept the recipe the same. If you like oatmeal with some spice you could easily add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking.

What you will need:

  • 1 cup unbleached all purpose organic flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted organic butter at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup organic raisins

What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat brown sugar and butter together.
  3. Make sure it is well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  4. Mix flour mixture, then add oats and raisins.
  5. Bake: 7 minutes then flip and cook for another 7. Perfect oatmeal cookies.

I love to make cookies and save some. Make a log and wrap it in whatever wrap you have and it’ll be good in the fridge. Make your kids a fresh baked treat for desert during the week.

    I love a really good soft oatmeal cookie. I have never thought of putting extra dough or even making some dough to refrigerate like that. Great idea!!
