Oatmeal Raisin Cookies {Recipe}

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies | Lil Miss Cakes I love oatmeal raisin cookies. There, I said it! I have heard claims of people getting angry about thinking they were biting into a chocolate chip cookie only to be shocked and appalled to find out it was oatmeal raisin all along. I’m over it. These cookies are delicious and you should all bake them asap. I do a few things in this recipe that take a bit of extra time, but I think they are really worth the effort. I start by measuring out the raisins and then I cover them with boiling water while I prepare the rest of the cookie dough. This allows the raisins to re hydrate and plump up giving you really juicy raisins, not chewy dried out ones. The other trick I’ve picked up over the years involves the oats. After measuring the oats, I pulse them a bit in the food processor to sightly break them down. I don’t turn them into a fine powder, I still want the cookies to have some texture. Here’s my dairy free oatmeal raisin cookies to feed a crowd! They don’t take long, no need to chill the cookie dough and they freeze well!

Serves: 60 Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups raisins
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Measure out the raisins into a small heatproof bowl. Cover the raisins with boiling water and set aside.
  4. Measure out the oats and pulse them in a food processor a few times until they are chopped up but not too fine and powdery.
  5. In a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients (oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt).
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the oil and the sugar and mix to combine.
  7. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  8. Stir in most of the oat mixture and mix to combine.
  9. Strain the raisins well and discard the water.
  10. Mix the raisins with the remaining oat mixture and stir to coat the raisins well.
  11. Fold or gently stir the oat coated raisins into the rest of the cookie dough trying not to break the raisins up.
  12. Scoop dough using a medium sized cookie scoop (1½ Tbs.) onto prepared cookie sheet. These cookies do spread a bit in the oven so leave space between each one. Bake for about 12 minutes until the edges are just lightly toasted brown.
  13. Allow to cool before transferring to wire rack.

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies {Recipe}

 

This recipe was circulating around the internet ages ago, I’m not even sure if it involved peanut butter or almond butter originally. Either way this cookie recipe is so easy. My only complaint is the price of almond butter can be quite steep. This is a one bowl, quick recipe, gluten free, and perfect for Passover! I recommend sprinkling some sea salt on top for the sweet and salty moment. I recommend using mini chocolate chips for these cookies because it makes it easier, but you can use regular sized chocolate chips, you may just need to help each cookie stick together by forming the cookies by hand.

Gluten Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies {Recipe}

I can’t take credit for this recipe, I didn’t develop it, but I did discover its awesomeness and want to share it with the world. This recipe comes from the back of a bag of almond flour sold at Trader Joes. The honest truth is that I don’t even buy their almond flour-I get mine at Costco, and I love it. I make these cookies on Passover for a friend and her family who can’t eat gluten and honestly, these are as delicious as a regular chocolate chip cookie. I usually need to hide them from my family so they won’t get eaten! These cookies freeze really well are gluten free, and perfect for Passover!
