Quaker Oats - Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Quaker Oats Oatmeal Cookies

Everyone remembers Quaker Oats from their childhood. Mom's used to make it for breakfast before the kids went to school. Now-a-days, Quaker Oats claims that eating oatmeal might lower your cholesterol. At the very least, it's a good source of fiber and everyone needs more of that in their diet! There's also a great Quaker Oats Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe on the back of the container.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 2 cups all purpose white flour
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon, ground

  • 1/2 pound (1 cups) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper or spraying with vegetable shortening.
