About how I made whole wheat oatmeal raisin cookies

This is a very simple recipe of classic oatmeal raisin cookies. Though I use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and you wouldn’t really know the difference. It tastes as great!

Whole wheat oatmeal raisin cookies are one of the mostly baked ones at home for it’s easy to bake and there are variations that can be done too like you can use cranberries, sultanas, black raisins or even chocolate chips. Each of them taste delicious!

I have used rolled oats here that’s why I have blitzed it before using. If you use the quick cooking oats you don’t need to grind. Good quality vanilla extract is important here. I have also used Cinnamon powder which tastes really great, you can do without it. Nutmeg powder also goes very well here instead of Cinnamon.

Like every other cookie recipe of mine, it’s without any baking powder or soda.

Whole wheat oatmeal raisin cookies recipe


  • Oats 1 cup
  • Whole wheat flour 1/2 cup

How to make oatmeal raisin cookies

  1. First, take oats and raisins in a food processor. Blitz it for few seconds.
  2. Next, cream the butter and sugar till nice and fluffy. I used a wire whisk as the quantity is less. You can use a hand blender or stand mixer as well.
  3. Then, add an egg to it and whisk it well. Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
  4. Add in the oats and raisins mix, wheat flour and cinnamon powder. Use a spatula to mix all the ingredients to form a dough.
  5. Cover the dough and keep in the fridge. The dough will be sticky so keeping it in the refrigerator for half an hour will make it easier to handle.
  6. Once it’s chilled, take out the dough and scoop out small portions of it on the parchment sheet. Flatten it with slightly with your fingers.
  7. Bake them in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown in colour and the top is set.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool them completely on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container. It stays fresh for a week.
