And here’s how to make them!

  • Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white cane sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sourdough discard
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cup seedless raisins
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liner.
  2. Add butter to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Whip the butter on medium-high speed until it’s nice and fluffy. Stop and scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl, during this process.
  3. Add brown sugar and white sugar to the stand mixer, and merge the sugar and butter until they’re light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg, and egg yolk to the buttery sugar mixture, followed by the vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed, until the egg is fully incorporated into the mix.
  5. Add the sourdough discard, and mix again.
  6. In a separate bowl, add flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.
  7. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients and mix on medium speed until well combined.
  8. Add the raisins, and walnuts to the cookie dough, mixing till everything has evenly distributed.
  9. Add the old fashioned rolled oats, mix until combined, but take care to not overmix the cookie dough. The cookie dough should easily stick together when rolled into a ball.
  10. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to separate the cookie dough into 1 ½ inch dough balls.
  11. Place these dough balls on 2 prepared cookie sheets, around 2-inches apart. Bake the first cookie sheet in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges have browned slightly. Remove the cookies from the oven and bake the next prepped cookie sheet.
  12. Allow your cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool.
