Recipe for One Oatmeal Raisin Cookie


Since I’ve already posted two recipes for a single cookie (one chocolate chip cookie and one 3-ingredient peanut butter cookie) I decided why not keep a good thing going and share a recipe for one single oatmeal cookie! We’ve got to try them all in single batch form, right?

These cookies are moist and chewy and they are simply one of the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever made or had (from bakeries included). I was so surprised that such a simple recipe could yield such fantastic results! This is definitely a recipe I’m going to hang on to for the days when I get a cookie craving but don’t want to take the time to make a full batch + have a huge mess in my kitchen.

I was intending on adding vanilla extract to this but forgot the second time around and I didn’t really notice, it just left room for the cinnamon to shine. So if you want to, add it, if you don’t, I don’t think it’s needed and it keeps the ingredient list down for this simple recipe.

5 from 2 votes


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup (scant) packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp whisked egg*
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 Tbsp raisins (or 3 Tbsp chocolate chips)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped pecans or walnuts (optional, chop small)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in a medium microwave safe mixing bowl. Heat in microwave on HIGH power until almost fully melted. Add brown sugar, 1 Tbsp egg, flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt to melted butter. Stir until well blended (it will seem dry at first but it will start to come together). Add raisins and nuts and mix.
  2. Shape dough into a 3 1/2-inch disk on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 13 - 15 minutes until edges are golden but center is still soft. Cool slightly and enjoy!
  3. *To get this, just crack an egg into a bowl and whisk until well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp. Reserve remainder in refrigerator for another use.

  • Nancy: This recipe was quick and easy. The cookie was a bit too sweet for me though. May try cutting down on the amount of sugar next time. Anyone try reducing the sugar with success? February 26, 2018 at 4:27am Reply

  • Gaylin: I doubled the recipe and made 2 cookies…one for me and my daughter. Very nice recipe. Thank you! January 14, 2018 at 8:21am Reply

  • A.C: I made this cookie for my mom a few days ago because she wanted something sweet. I used chickpea water on T of it instead of egg and it worked perfectly. I tasted a little of the cookie and it was perfect. So again thank you for posting. I’m gonna make one for me now :) November 30, 2017 at 4:40pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks A.C.! Glad you enjoyed it! December 4, 2017 at 12:11pm Reply

  • Jennifer: This was great! I doubled it (so hubby could have one too) and just went ahead and added a whole medium egg (seemed about right). I was worried it was going to be too sweet, based on how the batter smelled, but it was perfect; Just a little crispy on the outside and soft inside. I put a little jam in the center so I could call it a breakfast cookie. (Made it in a toaster oven with no issues.) Will definitely make again. November 19, 2016 at 10:10am Reply

  • T.: I omitted the nuts, doubled the recipe, and I can get about 11 small cookies out of it. These are absolutely the best! I will be making them as part of my x-mas sweets plate that I give out to friends and family. It is a hit, for sure. Thank you. :) November 26, 2014 at 2:48pm Reply
