Ingredients:Amish Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 2

  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil or shortening
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp baking soda
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk ( you can make a substitute by adding 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar to milk or half and half and allowing to sit for 5 min as a substitute, and it works perfectly fine!)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups golden raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together butter, coconut oil or shortening, and granulated sugar until fully incorporated.  Add the egg, molasses and vanilla and beat well.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl – flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder – and add to creamed butter/sugar mixture.  Add buttermilk next, followed by oatmeal.  When well combined, gently stir in raisins.

Drop by heaping tablespoon onto baking stone or cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool on baking stone/cookie sheet for additional 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these amazing cookies (that include some healthy ingredients)!

I cannot wait to hear what you think of them, and I dare you to challenge me to a better oatmeal raisin cookie recipe! 🙂

Cheers & Hugs,

      • is her site, and I believe she got her start here on WP. She’s now a NYT bestselling (cookbook) author due to the Paleo movement, and a lovely person besides. She’s all about the recipes! She has multiple autoimmune issues, and gluten and dairy free is the “prescription” for managing those illnesses, so that’s where her journey began. You’d love her recipes, Jodi. You two are equal in my mind, food-wise. Which is a huge compliment to you both. Her recipes have never let me down, even when I was new to the GF world. So, that’s really saying something, as I’m kitchen-challenged on my best day lol.

  1. Hubby will LOVE this! Thank you, Jodi! (Me, I’m exemplified by that funny joke going around Facebook that says something like “Cookies with raisins that look like chocolate chips are the reason I have trust issues”…LOL!)
