Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

The cookie binge continues... this time with a slightly healthier version. They are really quick and simple to make and I think raisins count towards your five a day? (Probably have to eat all the cookies though!)

1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 + 1/4 cup dark brown sugar (I reduced the sugar as I prefer it less sweet)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins

  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Mix flours and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Whisk together oil, sugar, egg and vanilla extract. 
  • Add the flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add in oats and raisins.
  • Place balls of cookie dough on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 15-17 minutes.
  • Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack.


  1. Those oatmeal raisin cookies look fantastic! Textbook perfect! Keep up this cookie binge!! :)

  2. Thanks! As you can see the cookie binge continues... more tomorrow :)
