Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Baking again… YAY! honestly, I don’t think there’s anything that I enjoy more, except maybe dogs, but unfortunately i’m unable to have one of those at this moment, so I suppose baking will have to do.

But no matter, I made these for my mum’s work as they were having a charity event to raise money for alzheimer’s, and apparently, these went down a treat!

They’re crumbly, moist and just full of deliciousness!


  • 100g raisins
  • 150ml vegetable oil
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 140g plainfour
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 300g oats


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Pour 50ml boiling water over the raisins and leave to soak for 20 mins until plump. Drain, reserving the liquid.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the oil and sugar. Gradually beat in the egg, along with the reserved water from the raisins, the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  4. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into the bowl, then add the oats. Finally, mix in the raisins.
  5. Drop heaped tbsps of the cookie dough onto the baking trays, well spaced apart as they will spread when cooking.
  6. Bake for 12-15 mins until golden.
