Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Orange Dark Chocolate

I decided to blog about these cookies because they came out so good. I have made this recipe before based on another online recipe, but I altered it to make it my own of course. These are so easy and fast to make, it took me twenty minutes in all to whip them up. My neighbour had a birthday and I wanted to give her a little something. This was the perfect recipe, as it only yields about eight cookies. So they are perfect if you just are hankering for something sweet, but don’t want 50 cookies staring you in the face! These cookies are everything you want in a cookie, thick, chewy and not too sweet. Enjoy!

110g (½ c.) butter softened
130g (2/3 c.) light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 large egg
90g (3/4 c.) flour
½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg (small pinch)
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. fine sea salt
130g (1 ½ c.) porridge oats
150g (1 c.) raisins
50g (half a bar)Lindt dark chocolate and orange bar bashed up

To make:
I generally start by mixing up the egg, sugar and vanilla until smooth next all of the dry ingredients.
Add the raisins and chocolate last.

Preheat an oven to 175C or 350F and bake these for about 10-15 minutes. I give such a big time frame because I personally like mine at about 13 minutes but it might be too soft for someone else.
Cool on a rack and serve warm!

Note: You can use any type of chocolate, but this is the kind I used. These also can have ½ c. walnuts added without the chocolate if you just want oatmeal raisin!
