Spiced Oatmeal Raisin cookies! Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day! I’m celebrating with these delicious cookies! I love adding Quaker 100% Whole Grain Old Fashioned Oats to my baked goods for additional taste and texture.
This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own.
From sweet to savory, oats are highly versatile, and they offer countless possibilities in recipes and dishes to get more out of what we eat each day.
Week One with Coco
We survived! Week one with our new puppy! As you all know, we have a cat, Cinnamon. Cinnamon is chill, super sweet and just does his own thing. Puppies, as you know, are completely different. Puppies require 1,000x more attention (and just like babies/siblings, we are spending quality time with Cinnamon too), need to be walked, taken out to go potty, need teething toys, snacks, naps and the list goes on. I’ve been waking up at 5am this entire week because she is on a schedule and sleeps in her crate from 9pm to 5:30am. I don’t know much about puppies but I think this is pretty great.
We have had so much fun with her, and can’t wait to take her to the park and on some adventures. we are also going to look into a cat backpack or a stroller for Cinnamon. If you have any recommendations for larger cats, please let me know in the comments below.
We survived week one, it’s Friday and today is a special day!

Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 cups Quaker Old Fashioned oats (100% whole grain)
- 1 cup raisins
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix until blended.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. With the mixer on low, slowly add in all of the dry ingredients until combined.
- Add in the Quaker Oats and the raisins and mix together one last time until all combined. Scoop the dough into heaping tablespoon sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on your baking sheet. Bake for about 10 to 11 minutes, or until the cookies are set and slightly flattened out. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
