Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate, large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the brown sugar and butter, mixing until light and fluffy. In a blender or food processor, pulse the raisins, vanilla, and eggs until no large chunks remain. Fold the raisin mixture into the creamed butter and sugar until fully combined. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Scoop 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie. Bake in preheated oven just until edges start to brown, about 12-14 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Note: The cookies can be kept in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
