National Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Day

It wasn’t until the early 1900′s that oatmeal became a major ingredient in the American diet.

Most research has found that the first recorded oatmeal raisin cookie recipe was written by Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1896.

Considered as a “health food,” the cookies quickly became popular, and by early 1900′s a recipe for the delicious treats appeared on containers of Quaker Oats.
