Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies 014

A friend is allergic to eggs, so when I made this recipe I made it in two bowls, splitting everything. One batch (red bowl) used 1 banana and the other batch (yellow bowl) used 1 egg. The recipe below will talk about using 2 eggs, but if you ever don’t want to use eggs while cooking, uses bananas! (or applesauce)


  • 1/2 cup + 6 TBSP butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups quick/old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
