Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding next. Beat in vanilla extract with last egg. Mix in flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in rolled oats and raisins; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until light and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack. Store in airtight container.

I made a healthier change: replace 1/2 cup butter with 1/4 cup grape seed oil. So one stick of butter and 1/4 grape seed oil. Polyunsaturated fats can have a beneficial effect on your health whe...

These were a big hit at work and at home! They did not rise or change shape really so they didn't look "pretty" but they're going strong and kept well in tins and in the cookie jar. I added 1/2...

More of a breakfast cookie than a "cookie" cookie, but pretty good. To make it healthier I used 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 butter. I also subbed palm sugar and honey in place of the brown and whi...

Awesome cookies.

This recipe is perfect if you want soft and flavorful cookies. The addition of whole wheat flour, less sugar, and no trans fats adds to my excitement of this recipe. My small 'grand'people are c...

These are really good. The only thing I did differently is add in addition to the raisins, 1/3 of a cup of white chocolate. Very Very Good.
