One of my favorite fall cookies is the classic Oatmeal Raisin. They make your kitchen smell like sweet cinnamon and are the perfect substitute for breakfast – they have oatmeal in them! In my experience, many people do not like raisins, so you can easily substitute the raisins with chocolate chips. The cinnamon and chocolate combination is absolutely amazing. And yes, I approve of chocolate chips for breakfast.
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
Beat butter and sugars together with an electronic mixer until fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and eggs. In a separate bowl combine together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture and beat until dough comes together. Slowly add in oatmeal. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips. Drop in spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake cookies for about 8-12 minutes. Enjoy!
