If you are in need of an easy cookie recipe, why not try my go-to recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies? They are chewy, sweet and full of healthy oatmeal!
In fact this recipe is easy enough I was even able to guide J through it and his batches have been just as good as mine. Though the cookies won’t last long, they will still be nice and chewy the next day, just store them covered at room temperature.
