These oatmeal cookies are very easy to make and came out great. We made about 24 cookies withcookies this amount of dough. Double or triple the ingredients for larger batches without any problem.

This simple recipe does not require a mixer so there is less to clean up and start to finish is about a half hour.



1 cup butter, melted
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
2 cups raisins
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder


Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together flour, oats, raisins, sugars, walnuts, baking soda, baking poweder in a work bowl.

Add melted butter and mix together well.

Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing completely.

If you would like to add any chocolate chips, do so now, stiring thoroughly.

On a half sheet pan place enough dough for about six cookies at a time (a couple tablespoons each). Leave enough space for expansion.

Bake for around 10-12 minutes. Longer if you want a crunchier cookie.

Note: if you use a convection oven, decrease the temperature a few degrees or bake for a shorter time.
