oatmeal cookies recipe with step by step photos – this is a super simple recipe of making oatmeal raisin cookies which give crisp, crunchy and chewy cookies with a lovely cinnamon flavor.

these eggless oats cookies are on the healthier side as:

  • whole wheat flour (atta) replaces maida (all purpose flour)
  • old fashioned oats (rolled oats) are added.
  • sugar added is unrefined cane sugar.

though you can use maida (all purpose flour), regular sugar, and quick cooking oats or instant oats also.

i have developed these whole wheat oats cookie recipe and have been making them for a number of times now. the method of making these tasty cookies is different and very easy. butter is cut in the flour and this method gives the cookies a crunchy texture. rolled oats gives a chewy texture.

raisins also give a nice sweet-tangy taste along with a chewy texture. you can skip raisins if you want. for a softer texture in the cookies you can add a pinch of baking soda.

making oatmeal cookie dough:
  1. take ½ cup whole wheat flour and ⅓ cup chilled unsalted butter in a mixing bowl.

  2. with a knife cut butter in flour and make a bread crumb like texture in flour. you can also use your fingertips to mix the cold butter in the flour till the mixture resembles a bread crumb like texture. alternatively a stand mixer also can be used. if the butter starts melting, then keep the mixture in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.

  3. then add the powdered sugar, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder and ¼ teaspoon vanilla essence.

  4. next add ½ cup rolled oats or quick cooking oats and 2 tablespoons golden raisins. mix again well.

  5. now add 3 to 4 tablespoons chilled (cold) milk in parts.

  1. now scoop out the dough with a tablespoon or any spoon.

  2. place the scooped dough on the greased tray. keep some space of about 1.5 to 2 inches between the cookies.
