1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 ½ cups raisins
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt. Set this bowl aside.
In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugars; mix with an electric mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the bowl, mixing until combined. Add oats, raisins and chocolate chips and mix gently until all of the ingredients are well blended.
Using a tablespoon, drop large spoonfuls onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Keep the cookies about 1 ½ inches apart to allow for the spreading of the dough.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through. Cookies are done when they are a golden brown but still soft to the touch. Allow them to cool for five minutes before removing from cookie sheet.
Cookies can be stored for up to five days in an airtight container.
