The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ever

That title boasts quite a claim, huh? Fortunately for you though, I'm right. These are so amazing and delicious!! Crunchy on the outside and perfectly chewy on the doesn't get much better than this!

The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ever

Yields about 24

1 ½ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tbsp ground cinnamon
½ cup coconut oil
1 ½ cup sugar
1 tbsp molasses
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla
1 ½ cup oats 
2 cups raisins

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon until evenly mixed, and set aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the coconut oil, sugar, and molasses until combined and fluffy {about 3 minutes if you slightly soften your coconut oil}.

Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Beat in the flour mixture little by little until it becomes too hard to use the electric mixer. Once that happens, you can either start to use a wooden spoon or your hands {I prefer to use my hands}.

Add in the oats and combine {using your hands really comes in handy *pun intended* here}.

Finally, add your raisins!

I'll be honest, I prefer golden raisins to a fault, and the only reason I used regular raisins in these cookies is that i ate all of the golden raisins we had in the house :(.

Roll the dough into medium-sized balls and press lightly onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Even though they won't spread by a huge amount, your cookies still do get a bit larger, so I would recommend leaving 1 to 2 inches of space between your cookie dough balls {especially if you make your cookies big like I did}.

Bake on 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Bake until your cookies are golden brown and starting to get a little darker around the edges. Make sure they don't look too wet in the middle!

Like most any cookie, these are best when eaten warm :).

Enjoy the best oatmeal raisin cookies ever!!!
