  • 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!
