Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies…

These are so good, I always bake at least one tray just a couple of minutes more to have some really crunchy ones as well, my son hates raisins. Which means I get more. Or like…all of them. You can add a half a cup of chocolate chips too if you want to shake it up a bit :)

So much for losing the muffin top, even though they are way lower in sugar than most cookies.

Freeze them too if you like, as it makes about three dozen…

What you need:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins
