Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Raisin Cookies

Updated: Feb 9, 2020

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.

You'll need:

  • 2 eggs

  • 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!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper

  2. 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.

  3. Sift flour and baking soda into a bowl. Slowly add to the wet ingredients in roughly thirds, mixing until incorporated each time.

  4. Slowly mix in oats, about one cup at a time.

  5. Fold in chocolate covered raisins, half cup at a time until evenly mixed throughout the batter.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

I just made these for the 2nd time! They are SO good!! The first time was back in early quarantine days (maybe March or April) and I didn’t have raisins, so I just used chocolate chips and a teeny bit of walnuts, and they were delicious. I finally got to make them this past weekend with chocolate covered raisins (TJ’s, like you suggested) and they turned out beautifully! This is a really great base recipe for oatmeal cookies; bookmarked now for all future oatmeal cookie needs.
