When you're not being tricked into thinking they're chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin cookies are actually quite delicious! Plump raisins are baked inside slightly sweet, slightly chewy cookies for a satisfying combination of flavor and texture. These cookies are a crowd-pleaser for any gathering and, with their fiber and fruit, are a bit healthier than chocolate chip and other sugary varieties.
This is a traditional recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies, but feel free to add more or fewer raisins according to your taste. Purple raisins are traditionally used, but white or golden raisins work, too. Even picky eaters such as kids will enjoy these sweet treats for birthday parties and school events.
