Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Cooling Time: 2 min

Cinnamon and oatmeal put a savory side on classic chocolate chip cookies. Raisins make them even more hearty -- and delicious!


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture and milk. Stir in morsels, oats and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are crisp but centers are still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I made my husband this cookie and sent it in his lunch box with some extra. So at lunch they have a lady that passes out store bought cookies. He said no thanks i have the real deal so he gave out some. Now everyday at work everyone wants to know if he has extra cookis! Everyone loved this cookie , especially my husband , oatmeals his favorite, now these are.

Perfect Cookie

by J. Jennifer , Somersworth, NH on Sep. 2009

These cookies were fantastic! It was the perfect way to sneak something healthy into a cookie. My son who says he doesn't like oatmeal never even knew it was in there. I will be making these all fall and winter in place of regular chocolate chip cookies.

We loved this one. I replaced the sugar with Splenda, but they still tasted great.

Made these for a sick friend and family. They just loved them. Next time I want to roll them in balls and freeze them for later use.

We loved these cookies. I added some chopped pecans to them for a little extra flavor. There's nothing like homemade cookies fresh from the oven - we always have to sample cookies from each batch cooked.

Yummy cookies

These cookies were delicous. Melt in your mouth good. I had a brainstorm to add Chopped walnuts. My family loved them.
