Chewy oatmeal raisin cookies recipe


(makes about 36 cookies)

  • 150g plain flour
  • 150g rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 150g light brown sugar
  • 50g raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 125ml vegetable oil (I used sunflower oil)
  • 4 tablespoon milk

How to make the recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 200 deg C. Lightly grease a baking sheet (I lined the baking sheet with parchment paper for ease in cleaning).
  2. Mix together flour, oats, baking soda, sugar and raisins in a bowl. (I 'plump up' the raisins a little by soaking them in water for a couple of mins.)
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, oil and milk.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. Mix together to form a soft dough.
  5. Place spoonfuls of dough well apart onto the baking sheet, and flatten slightly with the tines of a fork.
  6. Bake for about 10 mins. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an air-tight container.
