Soft, chewy, cinnamon oatmeal raisin cookies full of raisins and walnuts.
How many of you are the type that loves tons of extras inside their cookies? My grandpa is that way. He likes nuts, raisins, chocolate, oatmeal, and fruit inside his cookies. He obviously likes a “chunk” to his cookie!
For Father’s Day this year, I gave him Cookie Coupons that he could turn in to me at any time for 2 dozen cookies. His favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin cookies, so that was his first request. He asked me to specifically put extra walnuts and raisins inside. Let me tell you, these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies turned out soooooo good!
You’re going to love these cookies. They bake up soft, chewy, thick, cinnamony, and nutty. The dough is extremely addicting, so be careful! Here’s a hint for all of you cookie dough lovers: Stick some bubble gum in your mouth while you are baking so you aren’t so tempted to sneak the dough. I’ll be honest, though. I was still prone to eat some of this cookie dough because of my love for cinnamon!
I admit I am not a very nutty person, especially in my cookies. The texture got to me a little, but all I had to do is close my eyes and take a bite. I then decided that I liked nuts and raisins in my cookies! Besides, if I can’t see what I’m eating, I will have to focus on what it tastes like and not all of those chunks in there. It works!
If you absolutely don’t want to put nuts and raisins in, I’m not stopping you. This recipe would actually make a great basic oatmeal cookie! Put in whatever you like. You could try cranberries…or even chocolate chips!
Share them with your friends, or, of course, you can hide them somewhere and eat them all yourself!
