Upgraded Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

The first real job I had after college was in the curatorial department at a museum. Four of us were crammed into a small basement office next to the collections storage room, no windows to the outside world, but there were usually oatmeal raisin cookies!


Never before had I been a part of a group of people where I actually had to fight over the one or two oatmeal raisin cookies in the cookie basket!


These cookies are un update on a classic, the oatmeal raisin cookie! They are stuffed to the brim with raisins, oatmeal, and dark chocolate chips, I hope you enjoy!


⅔ Cup butter (softened)

⅔ Cup brown sugar

¼ Cup honey

2 Eggs

1 ½ Cups old fashioned rolled oats

1 ½ Cups flour

1 Teaspoon baking soda

1 Cup Raisins

½ Cup dark chocolate chips

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

½ Teaspoon cinnamon

¼ Teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.


In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the eggs and vanilla one at a time, beating in between each until well combined.


Mix the flour, oats, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl. Add ⅓ of the mixture at a time to the butter mixture and mix well. Continue until everything is incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips and raisins and mix with a wooden spoon.


Spoon with a tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet and flatten each cookie before baking for 10 - 12 minutes.
