Oatmeal, Raisin and Chocolate Chip Cookies

The cookie monster continues its forage into the world of cookies and what a wonderful world it is. Cookies are definitely one of my favourite snacks and I find it hard to resist especially a nice homemade cookie. Not a very original idea this time, just a combination of the different cookies I've been making recently. Having all these ingredients to hand might have a small part to play in the choice of cookies :) I roughly made up the recipe myself based on all the cookies I've been baking recently.

So how do you make some of these?
Beat butter, sugars and vanilla extract
until it's pale and creamy
Add in 2 eggs
Then fold in flour, baking powder and salt
Mix well until you get a soft, smooth batter
Stir in oats, raisins and chocolate chips
Cookie dough
Place on baking sheet
Delicious cookies

225g butter, softened
160g brown sugar
30g white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
230g plain flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
265g rolled oats
150g raisins
200g dark chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream butter, sugars and vanilla extract until pale and creamy.
  • Add in 2 eggs and mix well.
  • Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well to form a soft, smooth batter.
  • Stir in oats, raisins and chocolate chips.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls (or tablespoonfuls) of cookie dough onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes on sheet before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.
