Oatmeal Raisin & White Chocolate Cookies...Thank You Quaker Oats!

Today felt like a Cookie Friday day. It's nice and chilly outside and I've been a good good person by not eating sweets this whole week. Plus, I've had this giant container of Quaker Oats staring at me every time I open my pantry to get some cereal in the morning. I couldn't resist, I had to make some oatmeal cookies. Or like my niece used to say "I need to make oatmeal cookies".

Here's how to make a really delicious treat:
This recipe is adapted from the original Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies recipe by Quaker Oats for more recipes visit

1/2 cup (1 stick) and 6 tbsp of Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup of All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup of Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup of Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 cup of Light Brown Sugar
1/2 cup of Granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon of salt (optional)
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
3 cups of Quaker Oats Old Fashioned, uncooked
1 cup of Raisins
1/2 cup of White Chocolate morsels
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. Mix well.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
  • Add the combined flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; mix well.
  • Add oats, raisins and white chocolate morsels; mix well.
  • Drop rounded tablespoon sized dough on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8-11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet and remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies but I made 3 1/2 dozen cookies.


  1. I had been living in DC for a week or so when I first tried the mini, soft oatmeal cookies at Potbelly Sandwich works. They had chocolate chips instead of raisins. I've never been a fan of raisins in things, so it was a match made in heaven. :) I had to ration them so I wouldn't swell up like a blowfish and be too fat for all my clothes. haha

  2. My dear Satineeee,

    For you, I will only add chocolate chips. hehe
