Chocolate Covered Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies are a childhood favorite of mine. Made with or without raisins the chewy texture that the oatmeal adds to them, along with the crispy golden edges appeals to my personal taste immensely. I think they’re simply glorious. While the options with mix-ins is never ending it had never occurred to me to add chocolate covered raisins to the cookie dough. I gave it a whirl and loved the element of surprise that it added to them. Throw in some cinnamon chips and toasted pecans and all that’s missing is a tall glass of  milk.

Helpful Tips for Making Oatmeal Cookies

  • While I love using chocolate covered raisins in this oatmeal cookie, If you prefer you can certainly use plain raisins. You can also increase the amount with no other adjustments needed.
  • When sifting together the dry ingredients do yourself a favor and use a whisk. The old fashioned oats are too large and will not pass through a standard mesh strainer.
  • When creaming together the butter, sugars and vanilla, let the mixer do the work. You can’t over beat during this step and it will take 2-3 minutes for it to truly cream. If you don’t take the time to do this step properly, the cookies will be dry.
  • Add the eggs and beat well after each addition, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl from time to time.  Especially before you begin to add the dry ingredients.
  • Lower the speed of the mixer and add the dry ingredients gradually mixing until all are fully moistened.
  • Be careful not to over bake the cookies or they’ll become hard.
  • Cookie dough, in general is very forgiving and this dough will keep in the fridge tightly sealed for up to one week.

  1. We don’t get cinnamon chips here so how much ground cinnamon should I use instead?

  2. Have you made them without the cinnamon chips or a different type of chip? Unfortunately we don’t get cinnamon chips in this country. Looking forward to trying this, I love that it has chocolate covered raisins.

    1. You can make these with the same amount of chocolate chips, and perhaps add ground cinnamon to the dry ingredients.

  3. I love chocolate covered raisins. I haven’t had an excuse to have any in the house for a long time! THANK YOU!!!
