Today I craved oatmeal cookies– gluten free, of course! I couldn’t decide between chocolate chip or raisin, so I made both. The smell of toasted oatmeal cookies baking in the kitchen still lingers hours later as I write this. Yum!
Chocolate Chip & Raisin Toasted Oatmeal Cookies
Crispy, Soft & Chewy
It’s hard to imagine how all three of those words are used to describe one delicious cookie. But our Flour Farm oatmeal cookies are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Dave and our daughter can not get enough of them. Dave votes raisin, Vi votes chocolate chip, and I just shove in whatever crumbs they leave me.
Why do our cookies taste so amazing? We combine toasted oatmeal with our Flour Farm flour. The blend is magically delightful! Toasting organic rolled oats is as simple as spreading the oats out on a rimmed baking sheet covered with unbleached parchment. Toast the oats at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. About half way through the baking process, I give the oats a good stir. Remove the pan from the oven and cool for about 15 minutes. If not using right away, store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

Please read prep note above before you begin, thank you!
Step 1: Toast oats as instructed in the prep note.
Step 2: Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Step 3: In a bowl fitted to a stand up mixer, or a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add each egg, one at a time and blend until mixed. Add the vanilla and beat until combined.
Step 4: Add the dry blend to the wet mix and beat on low until combined. Gently mix in the “add-ins”.
Step 5: Drop onto parchment covered baking sheets. We use different sized scoops to drop depending on the desired size of cookies.
Step 6: Bake in the center of the oven for 8 minutes or longer depending on the size. Do not overcook or your cookies will be crunchy instead of chewy. Cookies will be a lovely golden brown on the outside when done.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
To store: When cookies finish cooling, store in an air-tight container. They stay delicious for 2 days, or freeze for up to a month.
