This is the 200th recipe on my blog. So happy to have shared these many recipes till now. Since it’s a special day then recipe has to be a sweet one, so “Oatmeal Raisin Cookies” it is. When I started this blog in December 2016 never thought I’ll be sharing recipes on baking and it feels great to have come this far. Thanks to all who have tried or praised the recipes shared by me. Feeling Delighted!!!
These cookies are loaded with oats and raisins. They are soft and chewy. Recipe is easy and has no eggs. They have become my favorite after Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.
You can make it gluten-free by replacing whole wheat flour with ground rolled oats.
Freshly baked cookies taste the best, but they’ll remain good for 2-3 days in an airtight container or freeze them for a longer storage.
If you like butter in your cookies, then replace oil with butter.
