Oatmeal Cookies

A versatile family favorite – and the whole grain oats are an added bonus. Add raisins, chocolate chips, dried cranberries or butterscotch chips. Make a gluten free version with certified GF rolled oats and an even swap of GF baking mix for the flour

¾ cup all-purpose flour


½ teaspoon kosher salt


½ teaspoon baking powder


½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed


½ cup granulated sugar

1 stick softened butter


1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1½ cups rolled oats


¾ cup raisins or chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon; set aside. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream together sugars and butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Fold in oatmeal and raisins.

Drop small mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer to a baking rack and cool completely.
