I can’t believe this is the first time I am sharing an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe with you (what the what?!).
Better late then never, I suppose, so let’s get to it.
There are so many ways to make an oatmeal raisin cookie; crunchy, chewy, crisp, etc.
This particular recipe is more cake-like (which I love) and comes together in just one bowl with no fancy tools needed. Just dump and stir and and bake and enjoy.
If you prefer chocolate over raisins, that would be a delicious swap. And this recipe can easily be made vegan by swapping out the egg for a flax or chia egg (just take 1 tablespoon of ground chia or flax seed and mix with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit until it thickens).
So what are you waiting for?! Happy baking!
