Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies, don’t you love the smell of homemade oatmeal cookies baking in the oven!

Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

If you love a moist, chewy oatmeal cookie, you’ll just love these!  I usually use quick oats in my oatmeal cookies because I prefer the end result, but rolled oats will work just fine in any of these recipes.

For the chocolate lover, these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies will hit the spot!

For the pumpkin obsessed! These chewy, Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal Cookies made with quick oats, pumpkin, and chopped pecans will bring delight with every bite.

And my personal favorite, Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies taste like banana nut bread, but in a cookie.

    The oatmeal raisin cookies are delicious !  Gina, every recipe I’ve tried of yours has been a hit. I never really cooked much before the pandemic but since then bought the One and Done cookbook and a few new appliances and been going to town. I’m a lifetime Weight Watcher for almost 20 years and really appreciate your helpful delicious recipes. 

  2. Hi Gina! I love all your recipes and have made many! What can I substitute for the flour due to wheat allergy? Thank you!

    Hi Gina, I need to make a low sugar oatmeal cookie and wondered if I can back on the white sugar and maple syrup by 1/2, in your oatmeal raisin walnut cookie?

  4. Made the Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies this evening (without walnuts due to allergy). They turned out great. Before adding raisins, I split the batter and added mini chocolate chips then raisins to the other half. Both are delicious. I cannot wait to give these to my friend and her husband!

  5. Made these for a cabin-camping trip. They held up well in backpacks for hiking. They were tasty and chewy and did not dry out like some oatmeal cookies do once they are cooled from the oven. I liked that they were a much healthier treat that were more like an energy cookie because of the ingredients. I used pecans instead of walnuts and homemade apple sauce from our backyard tree last fall. This recipe is a keeper and I will make again. Yummy!

  7. Looks like you have to click on a link to view the recipe. It is apparently not on this page.

  8. I am also unable to view or save the recipe. I'm getting that same error. 🙁 These sound amazing too!! 🙁

  9. The pumpkin pecan oatmeal cookies are totally favorites in our home! They actually made my blog tonight, too. 🙂

  10. I just printed out your recipe for the Oatmeal Walnut Raisin cookies and noticed or missed the part of the directions where it says to stir in the rolled oats. I'm assuming it goes with the dry ingredients but want to be sure.
    Thx for this healthy recipe, cant wait to try it!
