I’ve got a serious thing for oatmeal raisin cookies. Growing up, whenever our dad would take Liz and I to Subway for our “healthy” dinner, I would get an oatmeal raisin cookie for dessert. There’s something about the combination of oats, raisins, and a soft, chewy cookie that makes me melt. These are the perfect healthy alternative that are still moist, chewy and full of sweet raisiny goodness. Double or triple the batch and bring them along to your Thanksgiving get togethers this week. Also, if you like really thick cookies, try refrigerating the dough for 30-60 minutes before you bake them.
