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 Husband loved them made a few changes, i.e. added some chocolate chips and nuts. This just made it a little more interesting. Also reduced the sugar by almost 1/2 cup andthey were fine. Husband is diabetic, so less is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome recipe for my husband Love adding Quaker oats to our snack time, since we have both given up breakfast. The amount of iron in oats makes this a perfect treat for a person with anemia. For me, I just love the taste and texture.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Best Cookie Recipe Ever I bake cookies every week and this is my families favorite. I’ve used other oatmeal cookie recipes but this is the one I always come back to. I double the recipe and add lots of pecans.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite cookie recipes I make this recipe often. My husband loves them and I usually double it so I can freeze a batch. One of my go-to cookie recipes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cookie! These are very tasty cookies, enjoyed them very much. "Cons" for these cookies: This is probably something I did wrong because I don't bake a lot, but, the first pan came out beautifully. They spread nicely and browned up great. The second and third pans didn't spread. I thought that was weird. Also, it took more like 18 minutes for them to cook.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE RECIPE? This recipe is not the same as the original, and it is awful. Please put the old recipe back on the lid... this one stinks.
