Oatmeal Gala Apple Raisin Cookies Recipe

Updated on October 5, 2012

Oatmeal Cookie


Oatmeal Cookies

Here is a recipe of mine that I use for holidays, weekend baking with the kids or when I have a sweet tooth. It is a delicious variation of the oatmeal raisin cookie. When I cook I don’t measure ingredients to exact amounts, this allows for our own variations of recipes and to cater to your own and your families’ taste.


· 2 sticks of real butter

· 1 cup dark brown sugar

· ½ cup white granulated sugar

· 2 large eggs

· 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

· 1 ½ cups all purpose flour

· 1 tsp baking soda

· 1 ½ tsp cinnamon

· 2 ¾ cups Oats

· ½ cup dark raisins

· ½ cup golden raisins

· 1 large apple (I use Gala) cubed cored and peeled (peeling is optional)

Mix butter, and sugars together, then eggs and vanilla. Now you’re ready to add flour and rest of the ingredients. Bake at 325 for 13 to 15 minutes on an un-greased cookie sheet. Allow to cool before storing. Makes about 2 ½ dozen.

For cookie variations

Substitute the golden raisins for dried cranberry, this makes the cookies a little tart and add color to the cookie for an interesting appearance. Instead of cinnamon you can use apple pie spice instead with original recipe or for apple cookie variation.

Apple Cookies with Oatmeal can be made by decreasing the amount of raisins down to a quarter of the total amount and adding another apple, Gala, Fuji, or Green apples work well. By increasing the amount of apples, this increases the moisture content, so I usually increase the amount of oats slightly.

      Thank you for the comment Ruby. I love these cookies, my portions are not exact the more apples probably there will be a longer cooking time because of added moisture, maybe a lower temp like I said, I kind of "play it by ear" when I cook. These are great to make for a quick breakfast too if there is a limited or reduced amount of sugar. I hope you enjoy them, I would love to hear what you think. Thanks again.
