Light Instant Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 41mins
YIELD: 36 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • If using good quality instant oatmeal, you may want to use the oatmeal packets in their entirety. If the flavor of the non-oat part of the oatmeal isn't to your liking, then empty each packet and pick out the dried fruit. Then, run the oatmeal through a sieve to separate the oats from the flavoring.
  • In a large bowl, beat all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with a wooden spoon.
  • Stir in oats, flour and raisins.
  • If using oatmeal packets in their entirety instead of just the oats, allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes to allow the dried fruit and other ingredients to fully rehydrate.
  • On UNGREASED cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack or sheets of paper towel.
