Full of flavour, these oatmeal choc chip cookies also include juicy raisins and lots of chewy oat-y goodness!


I love oatmeal raisin cookies, but as you may have read in other recipes, it’s difficult to find gluten-free oats in Chile.  I save up all my oatmeal recipes for when I have been travelling either to the US or Australia and have found some gluten-free oats, and make lots … and lots of these recipes. 

This oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe is quite simple and makes quite a large batch of cookies.  If you use more brown sugar than it calls for (as I accidentally did the last time I made them), they come out even softer and chewier.  I used quick oats, as this was the only variety of gluten-free oats I could find at the time, and didn’t find the taste or texture too much different.  Overall, a very yummy cookie!
