Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Flavor and Texture I found some two year old Old Fashioned Oats and Whole Wheat flour at our vacation home and looked up this recipe. It came out great! Cookies are dark and chewy with just the right amount of salty sweetness. Thanks Quaker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Oatmeal Raisin cookies EVER! These cookies are not only simple to make but they are also by far the best oatmeal raisin cookies I've ever had. Perfectly soft, just the right touch of cinnamon. They turn out each time I make them and yes, they vanish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best recipe! I make these gluten free. I used gluten free Quaker oats and gluten free flour. Even making them with regular oats and flour, this recipe tops any I have ever used! Best recipe....don't over bake them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I’ve made these cookies SO MANY times. They are absolutely delicious, and easy to make. I added 1/4 of a cup of mini chocolate chips for a little bit more deliciousness, and I really liked it that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These cookies are to die for!!! These cookies are to die for!!! One tip is to use the Quaker Oats since they make this recipe even better so it is best to use their oats over other brands since they work so well in the recipe!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly great cookies This is a wonderful cookie and the only change I make to the recipe is to chop raisins and walnuts together so that the raisins don't burn and the flavor is throughout the entire cookie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much butter! Way too much butter given only 1-1/2 cups of AP flour. I even added more flour, but couldn't get the cookies to raise. I got flat, oily cookies. Tossed them all. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful after-school snacks Thank heavens cookies are easy to make -- my grandchildren want me to make these every day. One change, they don't like raisins so I use dried cranberries and sometimes add walnuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy Quaker oats! Quaker oats is very healthy. For one, it's rich in fiber. It helps to relieve constipation. Secondly, it's rich in protein. It helps to build and repair muscles and bones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and yummy While the cookies are great, I love the bars. I use a bit less sugar, a bit more cinnamon and oatmeal. Then I ice with strands of a thin very vanilla icing after cutting.
