Is there anything better than a classic chewy oatmeal raisin cookie?
It was only in my older years that I developed an appreciation for the oatmeal cookie. As a kid, they were my absolute last choice when it came to cookies. In fact, I thought they were nasty and I never really did like raisins.
The older I got though, the more I grew to love anything oatmeal, especially these classic chewy oatmeal raisin cookies! True to this blog, this is an easy recipe and I bet you have all of the ingredients on-hand right now and it only makes about 12 big cookies or 18 1 TBS size cookies.
Let me tell you a few things that make these classic chewy oatmeal raisin cookies the best. First of all, they have all brown sugar, no white stuff in these babies. And because of that, they’re super duper chewy and not overly sweet. They are also loaded with oats, which adds another level of chewiness as well as great texture. They’re the perfect quick sweet treat!
