These are for you, Daniel!
Oatmeal raisin cookies are actually my cookie of choice which yes, I get made fun of for. So I was very excited when my brother requested these! Using chocolate covered raisins was a fun twist!
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
1 cup brown sugar
12 tablespoons butter, room temp (3/4 cups, 1.5 sticks)
1/4 cup coconut oil melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 cups flat oats
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate covered raisins (Trader Joe's has good ones!)
Preheat oven to 350 and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper
In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, coconut oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla until light a fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating again after each.
Sift flour and baking soda into a bowl. Slowly add to the wet ingredients in roughly thirds, mixing until incorporated each time.
Slowly mix in oats, about one cup at a time.
Fold in chocolate covered raisins, half cup at a time until evenly mixed throughout the batter.
Use a 1/4 cup measure to make the perfect size cookie, these do not expand much. Place dough balls on the baking sheet a couple inches apart. I could fit 9 on my baking sheet, depending on the size you could probably fit 12.
Bake on 350 for 13-15 minutes, check that they're cooked all the way through using a tooth pick - stick it in the center and if it comes out clean you're good to go!
