    Quaker Oats Box

    Recipe Introduction

    My family loves oatmeal raisin cookies. The best recipe we have found came off the Quaker Oats box. With just a few adjustments and additions it has come to be one of our favorite cookie recipes.

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 cup butter, softened (butter flavored shortning works)
    • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 eggs, or 4 egg whites
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashion) Uncooked
    • 1 cup raisins
    • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until creamy.
    2. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
    3. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; stir well.
    4. Stir in oats, raisins, and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
    5. Bake 6 to 10 minutes for chewy or 11 to 12 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
