My boys love raisins, they eat them almost everyday. They are the perfect on-the-go, healthy snack. I often pack raisins in Jude’s school lunch.
Occasionally I will make a fun after-school treat, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup raisins
In a large bowl cream butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla
In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Stir flour mixture into butter mixture.
Stir in oats and raisins.
Chill the dough for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 deg.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat and portion dough into heaping tablespoon size balls.
Bake for 13-15 minutes.
The great thing about using raisins in this recipe is I don’t have to use a ton of sugar because the raisins are so naturally sweet. I love using California Raisins because they are all-natural and dried-by-the-sun. Did you know California Raisins contain zero fat, no cholesterol and NO ADDED SUGAR? So raisins make for a healthy on-the-go snack that kids love to eat because they are so sweet and moms love to buy because they are affordable.
