The maple glaze is so delicious on this oatmeal raisin cookie. It is a step up above the regular oatmeal cookie. I got this recipe from Steph. My family has enjoyed it so much.

With a light maple flavor, these oatmeal raisin maple cookies have an innate homeyness and warmth that just can't be beat! It's a wonderful twist on old-fashioned oatmeal cookies. Adding banana gives the cookie a different texture and adds flavor. The cookie is tender and cake-like. The topping is what separates this from other oatmeal cookies too. The glaze is maple flavored and the perfect complement to the cookie.

How To Make oatmeal raisin maple cookies

  • Oven set to preheat.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Vanilla, eggs, banana, sugar, and butter, creamed together.
    In a mixing bowl place vanilla, eggs, banana, sugar, and butter, cream together at low speed (mixture will look a little curdled).
  • Flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, raisins, and oats added to the bowl.
    Turn off the mixer and add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, raisins, and oats.
  • Cookie ingredients incorporated.
    Slowly turn on the mixer, keeping on a low speed, until all flour has disappeared into the batter. Make sure not to over mix the cookies. Place batter in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  • Batter scooped onto a cookie sheet.
    After 15 minutes using an ice cream scoop, you place batter onto cookie sheets.
  • Oatmeal raisin cookies baking in the oven.
    Bake for 8-12 minutes or until they are golden brown. I make my cookies medium or large size.
  • Glaze ingredients combined in a bowl.
    For glaze. in a small microwave-safe bowl microwave 2 tablespoons of butter and syrup for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Add 1 cup powder sugar and whisk into syrup butter until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Maple glaze poured over the oatmeal raisin cookies.
    Pour 1-2 tbsp of glaze over each cookie or just add in the middle of the cookie.
