Cocoa Oatmeal Jumbos
A favorite of my mom.
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup dark raisins
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Have two large nonstick baking sheets ready.
  2. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.
  3. In bowl of electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars until creamy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla. On low speed, beat in flour mixture, then stir in oats, raisins, and chocolate chips.
  5. Dollop ¼-cupfuls of batter onto baking sheets. Bake cookies for 17 minutes. (Note: I thought that was too long. I baked them for 12-13 minutes and they were perfect).
  6. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 4 to 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool. Makes about 16 to 20 cookies.
