Category: Desserts

Products Used: Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Baking with EVOO instead of butter transforms the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie, giving it an extra kick of sweet flavor and a healthier profile.


  • 1 cup of OTO Blood Orange or Meyer Lemon EVOO
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large bowl, mix the EVOO, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and stir well. Mix in oats and raisins.

Mold the batter into rounded spoonfuls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
