We are big cookie people in my house....like that cookie jar of ours needs to be filled at all times or we start moping around with frowny faces....ya know kinda like when Eeyore looses his tail...that kind of moping. I know we're absolutely pathetic, but what can I say...we love our delicious treats! Our standby is usually chocolate chip. It is one of my all time classic favorites. When I start feeling like we need to health it up a bit, I turn to these gems. Yes I know it sounds ridiculous that I have convinced myself that Oatmeal Raisin are the healthier option. A cookie is a cookie, but lets just pretend that by adding good for you things like oats, bran, and flax seed, it cancels out all that chocolate goodness. So now that we are on the same page, and pretending cookies are an absolutely healthy snack, let's make some Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are Ah-mazing! They also come highly recommended by this famous red head of mine :)

  1. I have to do the same thing... sometimes it's the only way I can get some veggies into my daughter...I have to mask them in a cookie along with superfood, flax, and chia seeds.. I'm not sure how she doesn't taste it all...but she loves them. I am going to have to give these a try! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Ha! That's great. My daughter's LOVE chocolate chip AND oatmeal cookies, and there's often an argument about which ones to make. This is an easy solution. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I'd love it if you'd stop bye and link it up at our link party so you could save any future cookie disagreements that may occur :)

  4. One time I ran out of chocolate chips when making cookies, so I used half raisin, half chocolate chips. I thought they were magnificent. There were others who disagreed. I'm glad I've found someone else who likes them too.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Secret to super moist raisins in your cookies: boil them for a few minutes before adding them in. Makes a world of difference - I have even converted some raisin haters!
