  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until fully combined.
  6. Stir in the rolled oats and raisins (if using) until evenly distributed.
  7. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown.
