Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

Updated on August 4, 2015
5 stars from 1 rating of Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

Oatmeal cookies with raisins and walnuts are one of my husband's favorite desserts, and this is his favorite of my recipes. I like to think that as far as cookies go, these are on the healthier side too. The walnuts are a great source of Omega 3s and both the oats and the raisins are great sources of fiber and antioxidants. Due to the butter and sugar content of course, just like any dessert, these should be enjoyed in moderation...hard as it is to do, since they're so tasty!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 12 - 24 cookies (depending on cookie size)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup all-prupose flour
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
  2. Grease 2 baking sheets with butter/cooking spray (or use non-stick baking sheets)
  3. In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, raisins, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  4. In another large bowl use an electric mixer to beat the butter and brown sugar on medium speed (I use '4' on my KitchenAid stand mixer) until creamy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Scrape down the mixer bowl with a rubber spatula. Then add egg and vanilla to mixer bowl, and beat on medium until blended in.
  6. Scrape down the mixer bowl again. And then add the oats/flour mixture and beat on low speed (I use '1/Stir' on my KitchenAid stand mixer) until blended in.
  7. Fill a heaping tablespoon with dough, and use another spoon to push the dough on to the prepared baking sheet. Continue in the fashion until you fill one baking sheet and then the other.
  8. Bake each sheet separately for 12 - 15 minutes or until the edges of the cookies start to turn golden brown.
  9. Let cool at least 10 minutes, and then enjoy!
