Chewy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies – Southern Plate by Gordon Ramsay

Chewy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies - Southern Plate

Chewy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

I posted this recipe eight years ago and they have remained my absolute favorite. But when I pulled up the recipe this morning to make them for family that is coming to visit next week, I realized the recipe itself needed some updating. So I’m posting them again with the rewritten recipe that is easier to understand and written in the correct format. 🙂

I’ll be in the kitchen most of today getting ready for one of our family Thanksgivings this weekend so I have lots of cooking and baking to do. I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday spent with family and friends!

Chewy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies



Serves: 2-3 dozen


  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (granulated) sugar
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup dark raisins (plus more for putting on top)
  • ½ cup golden raisins (plus more for putting on top)
