Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies

I am asked for this recipe time and time again… by adults, by kids… its a winner! And  If Bailey could choose something to bake it would either be these cookies or flapjacks, they are both his all time favourites.

Makes about 16

  • 125g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 175g soft light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g white self raising flour
  • 50g wholemeal self raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75g oats
  • 65g raisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 170 fan. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan or slightly covered in a bowl in the microwave.
  3. Place the sugar in a mixing bowl, add the melted butter and beat together with a wooden spoon. Add the beaten egg and vanilla extract and mix together well.
  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Then add the oats and raisins and lightly mix together but don’t overdo it. I add more oats and raisins if it looks abit bare, I like to be able to see them at this stage .bailey-baking-cookies
  5. Scoop out a tablespoon of this cookie mix at a time and place on the baking sheets, it doesn’t matter if its a bit messy, allow space between each one as they will spread!COOKIE MIX
  6. Bake in oven for about 10 mins, they should be golden but still a little soft.COOKIES ON BAKING TRAY
  7. Allow to cook still on the baking trays until a little firmer, then can be transferred to a cooling rack… (if not eaten first!)cookies-in-tin
