Oatmeal Raisins Cookies

I am so so sorry that I have not been updating my blog for quite a while! Not been cooking much but finally here's a new recipe of these super yummy oatmeal raisins cookies that my mum recently experimented! If you like our previous Chewy Spelt Oatmeal Cranberries Cookies (recipe can be found here and also Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies (recipe can be found here, I promise you will love these too - and maybe even more!


Raisins x 1 cup
Hot Water x 1 cup
All-purpose flour x 3/4 cup
Rolled Oats x 3 cups
Vanilla Extract x 1/2 tsp
Coconut Oil x 2/5 cup
Whole Egg x 1 
Baking Soda x 1/2 tsp
Salt x 1/2 tsp
Ground Cinnamon x 1/2 tsp
Ground Nutmeg x 1/8 tsp
Unsalted Butter (Room Temperature) x 2/5 cup
Brown Sugar x 1 cup


Preheat oven to 350F.  Soak raisins in a bowl of hot water and set them aside for 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, blend butter (room temperature) and sugar together until the mix is creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract into the mix and stir until well combined.

In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats together. Pour the oats mix into the butter mix, beat them together until combined. 

Drain the raisins (press them to squeeze out any excess water) and stir the raisins into the batter. Line baking sheets on a baking plate, scoop two tbsps of the batter onto the baking sheet as each cookie dough. Gently press the cookies down into a circle shape. The thinner they are, the crispier they are. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes until the edges turn golden brown and have them cool down for 10 minutes before you start eating them :D believe me, once you start, you probably cannot stop because they are SOOO YUMMY. I don't know about yours by mines taste like popcorn heh :D sooo addictive!
