Recipe recommendation: Quaker Oats’ Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies

They really do vanish, so  I highly recommend it as part of your cookie baking arsenal of recipes. They aren’t overly sweet, which is excellent for me since too much sweetness can be a bad thing. If you like baking using parchment paper, you may want to let them bake for 2 minutes more so they can brown up a bit. They are very chewy and delicious.

Here is the recipe from the Quaker website if you don’t feel like clicking the above link:


  • 1/2  cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup granulated sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3  cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1  cup raisins (I think you can get away with 1/2 cup for this recipe)

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown (a bit longer if using parchment paper). Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

I would have posted a picture, but they vanished before I could 😉
