Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Oatmeal

If I could (and knew there wouldn’t be health risks knocking at my door later down the road) I’d eat cookies all day – for each meal – everyday.

My sweet tooth is out of this world, so I’m embracing the body type I’ve been blessed with now because who knows how much longer it’ll be sticking with me 🙂

This morning for my breakfast, I was really feeling an oatmeal raisin cookie with all the warmth and awesome texture it provides.

This oatmeal nailed it for me. It had the combination of being soft and chewy along with the wonderful crunchy texture from the almonds – which is just how I like these kind of cookies: crunchy on the outside but incredibly chewy on the inside.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Oatmeal

Serves 1


  • 1 cup milk of choice or water

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 banana, mashed

  • 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • pinch of salt

  • small handful of raisins

  • maple syrup for serving

  • 1 tbsp. toasted slivered almonds


  1. Bring milk to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium.

  2. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, add mashed banana and mix.

  3. Add in brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir. Add raisins and stir.

  4. Once the oatmeal has reached the consistency you prefer, transfer to a bowl.

  5. Top with maple syrup and almonds. (Some pecans snuck in there too 🙂 )

  • The banana is used as a natural sweetener, if you do not care to use a banana: honey, maple syrup, or any sweetener of choice may be substituted.
