Recipe – Oatmeal Raisin and Date Cookies

It’s 12 am and I’m baking, again. For those who don’t know, I became a mom 2 months ago alhamdulillah! It’s very exciting but also veryyyy tiring and stressful at times. So how do I cope? I bake…a lot!

Tonight I’m making oatmeal cookies with dates and raisins. Oatmeal is supposed to help with milk production so why not, right? 😛

Here’s the recipe below, enjoy! Xx

What You’ll Need:

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix the oats, flour, raisins, dates, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

4. Add the two mixtures together until fully combined.


5. On a baking sheet, place small round balls of dough, about 1.5-2 inches apart.


6. Bake until cookies are golden brown but still soft, about 6 minutes on each side.

7. Set on rack to cool.

8. And enjoy!
