  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat with cooking spray or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2.  In mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; set aside. 
  3. In a separate medium mixing bowl beat butter and sugar until fluffy, approximately 2 - 5 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla. 
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture incorporating all ingredients. Gently fold in the raisins and oats including nuts if using.
  5. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes or more, this allows the flavors to incorporate and the oats to soften.

  7. Remove cookie sheet from the oven and let cookies cool for 2 minutes, move cookies to wire rack to continue cooling.

ENJOY!
