Maple and Raisin Oat Cookies

Soft, chewy and packed with plump juicy raisins- raisin oat cookies are undeniably a kitchen staple and there should always be a place for them in the cookie jar.

A simple, basic cookie, easy to make, delicious every time and jammed full of goodness! After all even the healthiest cookie should be delectable and scrumptious.

Just to add to the delectable scrumptiousness of these cookies I used maple syrup as the main sweetener – I know I have an absolute passion for maple syrup - but that soft hint of caramel toffee, which is the quintessential flavour of maple syrup, sweet but still so light, is the perfect combination with the oats and raisins making for a truly delicious cookies.

I like to soak the raisins in boiling water for 10 mins before adding them to the mix.  This softens the raisins and helps to keep them moist and plump and prevents them from burning when cooking.

You’ll find that these spread a bit whist cooking so be sure to leave some space between them on the sheet.

I like mine a little flatter so I press them down very gently when I first get them out of the oven.

This is completely optional – it you like a thicker cookie just leave them to cool and I promise you won’t be disappointed! :)
