Oatmeal raisin cookies – nothing quite like the classics!

These oatmeal cookies are amazing – soft and chewy, with a nice blend of ‘oatiness’.  They seemed to taste healthier than other oatmeal cookies, if that’s possible.  But they weren’t as loaded with fatty things like peanut butter, like my other awesome oatmeal cookies (Monster Cookies, recipe here).  I’m almost thinking that I like these better than the monster cookies … but I haven’t quite gone that far yet. 

The recipe called for raisins, but I used the recipe to use up all our leftover milk and white chocolate chips and M&M’s, as well as the raisins.  I think the raisins make them nice and sweet, and a little juicy.

Try them both and let me know which ones you like best!
