Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies
When I told my friend that I loved to bake, the first question she asked me was…can you make oatmeal cookies? Oatmeal cookies with raisins and nuts in them?
Yes I can make them, my only probably was I didn’t have a recipe that I liked. Up until now, every recipe I tried yielded oatmeal hockey pucks.
Cookies you’d have to dunk to make soft. I wanted an oatmeal cookie recipe that would give me what I love about a fantastic chocolate chip cookie recipe, a soft, chewy cookie.
This is it! Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies just the way I love them!! Enjoy!

I mixed the ingredients by hand and omitted the 1 cup of sugar. They still came out delicious though!!!! They are a bit more cakey than chewy though, could it be because of the omitted sugar?
Wonderful Alexa! This is my husbands favorite oatmeal cookie, I’m so happy you love it too!
Very good recipe, nice & soft/chewy. The only thing I felt missing is the cinnamon & cloves as in the traditional recipes. The spices add that extra pop of flavor. Thx for sharing!
Just found this recipe and made them today. Delicious. Soft and chewy
I have made these cookies 3 times in just as many weeks(I reduced the recipe to 18 cookies since it’s just my husband and I) and they are amazing! My husband isn’t a fan of oatmeal cookies and he likes them. I freeze some of them to enjoy the whole week long. By the weekend it’s time to bake another batch. Great recipe. Thank you for sharing.
OMG!! This recipe is amazing. The only thing I did different is soak the raisins in hot water while preparing the dough. I didn’t have the extra time for the soak. This recipe is a keeper.
I’m so happy to hear this! Oatmeal raising pecan cookies are a great thing, especially for when we are being stuck inside right now!

Have made these cookies several times, these cookies, they are amazing. I add a little cinnamon and a teaspoon of instant espresso, can’t taste it just gives them a something in the background. They disappear Everytime I take them somewhere. This makes a big batch and only my husband and me, will the dough balls freeze.
I soaked the raisins, added a bit of cinnamon and used whole oats, not quick oats. I would cut back on the butter a tiny bit as they spread a little too much even after the dough was refrigerated over night. But, they are delicious. I bake at very high altitude, so that is always a challenge!
Hi Bunny! I’ve had a similar recipe for years & I can attest they are amazing cookies that everyone loves! I e tried yours only because my recipe only uses 1-1/2 cups of flour..mine have a nice spread & not so puffy which my hubby prefers. Also added cinnamon & splash of allspice. Didn’t have raisins so subbed craisins. If anyone really likes cheery oatmeal cookies, you’ll LOVE this recipe. No hockey pucks here, lol! Thank you Bunny, love your site!
Oh, craisins, awesome! So glad you liked the oatmeal raisin pecan cookies, thanks for stopping by!
Just made the cookies. They came out great! My husband will be thrilled when he gets home. I used self rising flour, omitting the baking powder and salt. I also used sugar in the raw instead of white sugar. They are delicious. Thank you for this recipe. I’m keeping it as my oatmeal cookie recipe standard!
Awesome recipe. I added eighth cup of white chocolate chips and teaspoon of cinnamon. Making again,💞
The perfect oatmeal cookie! I subbed walnuts for pecans because that’s how my mom used to make them. I also added a bit more flour as I’m just above 4,000 feet. They’re delicious!!!
