This oatmeal cookies recipe is one I learned to make when I lived in Germany. They are slightly different from the American version, but equally good if not better! My holiday season wouldn’t be complete without them.

Oatmeal is great stuff if made properly. And these cookies are very… well… “proper“!

While these are a little high in fat, they are only to be enjoyed once in a while, and certainly make a much healthier treat than what you can buy in the stores.

OATMEAL COOKIES RECIPE WITH RAISINS:

This dough is very versatile. Once you have the basic dough made, you can divide it into four separate bowls in equal portions and add in things like raisins, unsweetened cocoa powder and more! See suggestions in the recipe. I’ve made each one of the flavorings as separate flavors and they are all delicious. It’s a great way to vary the flavors of this dough in order to give people options at the dessert table. That being said, you can certainly just make the base dough and you’ll still have a wonderful cookie!

    1. Could you substitute the butter with Coconut butter (which is a healthier fat)?

      1. The Gracious Pantry says:

        You know, I’ve never tried. It’s a good idea though. You could certainly give it a try.

        Please let me know how that turns out. I’m really curious!

    2. Just made these and wow, they are good!!! I did add dark chocolate chips and cut the agave in half and added sucanat and only used one whole egg and two whites.
