Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my dad.

 He loves his family, cars, Christmas, and…

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

So, when he and my mom came to visit us this past weekend, I took a little spin from the traditional route, and I made these…

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

They are little bites of cinnamon-y, nutmeg-y, chewy, chocolate-y, feel like you are in your happy place goodness.

If you need sweet comfort, this is the ticket.

First, you will need these ingredients:

Image

butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, honey, flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, rolled oats, raisins, semisweet chocolate chips
Can you tell I love Kroger?

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then, melt 1 cup of butter. (I did not promote this as one of my healthier recipes.)

Image

Image

Put the melted butter and 1 cup packed brown sugar in a bowl.

Image

Using a hand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar.

Image

You will know it’s done when it looks like this:

Image

You are done with the hand mixer.

Now, add 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon honey, honey. (Sorry, I had to.)

Image

Use a spoon to mix it all together.

Image

When it’s done it should look like this:

Image

Set it aside.

Get out a large lovely mixing bowl, and add 1 1/2 cups floor, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg.

Image

Mix it together with a fork.

Image

Until it looks like this:

Image

this may look like a bowl of sand, but it smells like cinnamon and nutmeg goodness.

Now, add your bowl of dry ingredients to the bowl you had set aside.

Image

Stir it up real good. (What a horrific lack of proper adverbs.)

Image

Image

 Add 3 cups of rolled oats. I would stir them in one cup at a time, so it is not too difficult to stir.

Image

When you have added all the oats, add 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips.

Image

Then add 1 cup of raisins.

Image

Mix it all together well.

Image

Grab a spoonful, roll it into a ball, and place them on a non-stick or greased cookie sheet.

Image

Cook at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Image

Set them on a cooling rack.

Image

Now, gobble them up. I highly recommend a glass of milk.

Image

I was going to take a picture of all of us enjoying them when my parents were here, but we were too busying scarfing them down to take pictures. YUM!
