Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with BLACKLIST

A decadent, chewy oatmeal raisin cookie is just about as perfect as something can be. They've got a complex texture, subtle sweetness and satisfy your sweet tooth without any chocolate, icing, or candy -- just good ol' oatmeal and raisins. 

The trick to this recipe is that the raisins are plumped (ideally overnight) in our BLACKLIST Black German Lager. This gives them a moistness and complexity of flavour you just won't get from straight-from-the-bag raisins.


  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cups of "instant" steel-cut oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of raisins (measured before plumping)
  • 1 can BLACKLIST Black German Lager
  • 1 large egg


  1. The night before baking: place raisins in a bowl; pour enough BLACKLIST Black German Lager into the bowl to completely cover the raisins. Cover bowl and refrigerate overnight
  2. In a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla
  3. Add in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda and mix until blended into an even paste
  4. Remove raisins from fridge and strain them to remove excess liquid
  5. Add raisins and oatmeal and mix until combined
  6. Form dough into a rough ball and wrap in plastic wrap
  7. Refrigerate dough minimum 1 hour, up to overnight, before using
  8. Preheat the oven to 350° F
  9. Prepare two baking sheets, lined with parchment
  10. Form dough into 12 evenly sized balls (each should weigh approximately 60 grams, but to be sure, weigh your dough ball and divide)
  11. Arrange 6 balls per sheet, evenly spaced
  12. Press each ball flat, and use your thumb to press a divot into the centre of each
  13. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies area lovely crisp brown
