I love baking, I love oatmeal cookies and I love chocolate covered raisins. So when we bought this large container of Milk Chocolate Covered Raisins from Costco I decided I needed to use this in some delicious home made oatmeal cookies. I adore oatmeal raisin and go crazy over oatmeal chocolate chip so this seemed like the perfect hybrid.
1/2 cup (114 g) unsalted butter at about room temperature
1 large egg
1 1/2 cup (150 g) old fashion rolled oats, the ones that say “large oats”
3/4 cup (150 g) *plus a few more* Costco Kirkland Milk Chocolate Covered Raisins
1 tsp vanilla
1 pinch nutmeg (optional)
1/2 cup (110 g) packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp fancy molasses (optional, it enhances the flavour)
3/4 cup (125 g) all purpose flour
- Cream the butter until it is light and fluffy, if you’re using a mixer like a Kitchenaid, mix on medium speed for about a minute and a half.
- Scrape bowl, add vanilla, brown sugar, granulated sugar and molasses (if using) and mix for about another minute until creamed. Scrape sides of bowl as needed.
- Add egg and mix just until incorporated.
- If using mixer turn mixer to low, add flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and pinch of nutmeg and mix until combined.
- With mixer on low add milk chocolate covered raisins and oats and mix just until it’s all pulled together. I prefer to mix this by myself with a spatula. Feel free to do what works for you.
- Cover dough with saran wrap, either in the same bowl or transfer to a different bowl, put dough in fridge to chill for about an hour before making.
- Preheat over to 350. Make 2 inch balls using your hands or a cookie scoop, place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. (I do not flatten my balls because I like thick, soft cookies).
- Bake for about 11-12 minutes, until edges are slightly brown.
* I like to put the 3/4 cup of Costco Milk Chocolate Covered Raisins in the fridge so if my apartment is hot they do not melt when I incorporate them*
