Chewy Oatmeal, Raisin, Pecan Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by AZFoodie

This is by far one of the best oatmeal cookie recipes that I have ever made! The cookies are plump, chewy, and full of crunchy pecans and raisins. The honey really sets if off with a unique taste. Once you make these cookies with the honey in them, you will never want to make oatmeal cookies without honey ever again! And it can be easily altered to your liking by changing the add-ins from raisins & pecans, to just about anything you want (walnuts, dates, dried cranberries, etc).

A great oatmeal cookie recipe. They turned out just like you said. I love the addition of honey. It's a nice flavor. Try Cinnamon Chips for an add-in.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or almunim foil (butter foil).
  2. OPTIONAL: Soak 1 cup of rasins overnight in water to make them nice and plump.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt with a fork.
  4. In a seperate large bowl, beat the butter and both sugars in with an electric mixer until fluffy. Then beat in honey, eggs, and vanilla.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the large bowl while beating on low.
  6. Stir in oats, raisins, and pecans.
  7. Drop batter by large tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, spacing mounds 2 inches apart. Flatten mounds only slightly if you want a fat, chewy cookie; or flatten mounds more if you want a thinner cookie.
  8. Bake cookies until the tops start to turn golden brown, about 11-12 minutes.
  9. Cool for 3-5 minutes on cookie sheets, then move cookies to a cooling rack.
  10. Store cookies in an airtight container to keep them nice and moist.
