Growing up, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies were my dad’s favorite. All of us kids loved my mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies so she would make both. Well, I’m very proud of my taste buds- they finally matured! The other day, Bri had a craving for these babies & we haven’t been able to stay out of them since. What I like about this recipe is:
1. You don’t have to use a whole ton of flour so it’s relatively inexpensive.
2. It has oat’s in them & we LOVE our gluten free oats over here!
3. The raisins moisturize the cookie, giving it a soft texture. Most Oatmeal Raisin cookies I’ve tried are hard & crunchy.
4. I can have as many as I want without getting sick! That’s a big deal. 😉
Just to give you a heads up about how good these are, before I made them Colby was telling me that he’s never cared too much for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I told him that was because he hadn’t had mine! He said, “Everyone always say’s that. But every time I end up trying ‘their recipe’, I just don’t like it.”
Guess what!? He likes these! Nicely done, us!
