Alex’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and Raisin Cookies
This recipe is inspired by the Quaker Oats Colonel Man, but I like to add dark chocolate, chocolate chips! (Who doesn’t love those anti-oxidants?!)

What do you do when you are awake at 2:00 AM on a summer night? Make some scrumptious cookies to share with everyone!


  • 1/2 cup (1 Stick) of softened butter
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt (optional!- PS be careful, I almost put a full tablespoon… oops!)
  • 3 cups Quaker Oats -Oatmeal
  • 1 cup rasins
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 350*. In large bowl beat butter and sugars on medium speed – or by hand until creamy.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
  3. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes ( I found that this made two batches of cookies for me, but it could make 3 if you made them small)
