Ingredients
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 tbsp flax seed (optional)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter, unsalted, at room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp molasses (optional, but adds a nice, rich flavor)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¾ cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ½ cup chocolate chunks or chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, flax seed, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter until smooth. Add the two sugars, and beat until pale and fluffy (about 2 minutes) Then, beat in egg, molasses, and vanilla. Scrape down bowl, and mix one more time to ensure everything is fully incorporated.
  4. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Then, using a spatula, fold in rolled oats, raisins, and chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop dough into about 1-inch round balls, arranging about 1-2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned but still soft in the center. Allow to set and cool for at least 20 minutes. Enjoy!
