Ice cream is one of our favorite desserts during the summer despite the messy little toddler arms covered in melted drips of ice cream. They are even more popular with the chef in the kitchen (that would be lil’ old me) when I don’t have to turn on the stove and heat up the kitchen at all! This delicious bowl of ice cream you see above is no cook and egg free Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Batter Ice Cream! Ready to churn in just 2 minutes and taste’s like you are licking the bowl of Cold Stone’s oatmeal raisin cookie batter ice cream! How can you beat that?
Making ice cream can seem daunting or expensive. Granted the ingredients (mostly the heavy cream) are not inexpensive but the flavors you can make at home will win you over! If you ever want to have a bit of ice cream inspiration you can always head over to my business page where you can see all of the Ice Cream Flavors I make for my clients. I dare you to find most of those in your grocery store! 🙂
When it comes to equipment to make your ice cream there are a huge number of options. I have three ice cream makers (of course I have a ton of kitchen gadgets, my friends joke my house looks like a Williams-Sonoma store that collided with a Toys R Us) including a fancy gelato maker, a standalone Cuisinart and a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer attachment. For purely lazy reasons alone I usually use my fancy gelato maker because it is self freezing and I don’t have to stash a bowl in the freezer. I’ve even seen some awesomely creative people make ice cream with bags of salt and ziploc bags of custard shaken together. Either way, if you have an interest in ice cream just do a quick Google search and you’ll find a great tool at your disposal. Most of my clients who would ask for my recommendation ended up buying the Cuisinart one.
Mix the brown sugar, oats, raisins and cinnamon in a bowl together.
Mix the milk, cream and cake mix together.
Add in the dry oat mixture until well combined. Put in ice cream maker and make to your machine’s specifications. Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Or you know, you could always serve it with some delicious Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce. Just an idea of course! 😉
- 2 cups half and half
- 1 cup 2% milk (This is what we have on hand for our toddler, use any milk you may have, even non-fat)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3/4 cup white cake mix
- 1/2 cup regular oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Mix the brown sugar, oats, raisins and cinnamon in a bowl together.
- Mix the milk, cream and cake mix together, then add in the dry oat mixture until well combined.
- Put in ice cream maker and make to your machine's specifications.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Not a fan of raisins? I have made this ice cream with peanut butter chips instead. Also chocolate chips of course! If you would make it in a cookie you could substitute it in here easily too! For the holidays last year I swapped out raisins for cranberries and the cinnamon for pumpkin pie spice. CRAVEABLE!
Psst…want something chocolatey instead? Check out my Super Dark Chocolate Stracciatella Ice Cream 🙂 You can thank me later!
Can I leave out the cake mix? Or would I need to substitute something else for consistency purposes, do you think? I know it wouldn’t be cake batter flavored but that’s ok with us. Oatmeal raisin anything is my husband’s favorite! Thanks!
Sorry this comment took so long to get to, it ended up in my spam filter somehow! Sorry I just found a huge number of comments over the last three months that was snared in the spam filter and I am trying to follow up with each one now even though in your case I am way too late to help. It isn’t for consistency so much as for the flavor. It adds the “cookie” flavor to the ice cream. Otherwise it would taste more like cinnamon raisin ice cream. Hope that helps, sorry again for the crazy delay in responding.
Thanks so much for responding! I did make the recipe without the cake mix, but I added a teaspoon of butter extract as a substitute to mimic the “cookie” flavor. It worked wonderfully, and was a huge hit with my husband and kids!
So glad it worked out!
The ice cream looks really good. I would not have thought to add the cake mix.
Oh yes, you’d never guess how amazing it comes out. Just like licking the bowl of cake batter without the pesky raw eggs.
I’ve never made homemade ice cream before, but would love to try sometime. That looks and sounds delicious!
Omg, that looks so yummy! I am drooling on my keyboard right now. I have to make this. On another note, I would really like my own gelato maker!
I LOVE my gelato maker. The only down side to it is the weight. It is like carrying one of those old tube tvs that you just don’t understand how it could be so heavy. Like the entire inside is made of cast iron or something.
This looks so amazing. Perfect for that hot summer weather and much cheaper than cold stone.
Thanks! yes! much. I cheated a bit and added a melted butter, graham cracker crumb mixture to the top and make it even more ridiculous when I was making a cheesecake and had some extra crust mix left over.
Wow this looks amazing! I bet you guys ate it up real fast too!
We have an ice cream maker and I am so trying this! My husband will love it since he loves making ice cream. 🙂
Awesome! I hope you love it! Don’t forget the salted caramel sauce with it!
I love eating ice cream but have never liked trying to make it, so I will just have to keep buying my ice crack, ahem I mean ice cream at the market! LOL
My favorite is white chocolate raspberry truffle by Haagen Daaz and Cherry Garcia by Ben & Jerry! Unfortunately I have never tried Coldstone because they are nowhere near me, but if I see one while I’m on the road this summer I will definitely stop in. 🙂
Ooh I love that Haagen Daaz one too! We buy Haagen Daaz and Talenti when we don’t make it too 🙂
That looks delicious! I could go for some ice cream right now 😉
This really looks so yummy and I must try to make it asap! I love brown sugar and my kids love raisins 😉
The kids who had it at our park playdate were all really excited about it!
Such an interesting flavor combo! And I read over the other ice creams you make – wow! Apparently I’m seriously slacking on my ice cream exposure!
Haha, you would be shocked at some of the requests for flavors I have gotten. Over the years the list builds!
Yum. This is so different. It sounds just wonderful. Would love to give this a try, we love ice cream at my house!
This looks delicious. I love love love homemade ice cream – the making the ice cream and waiting is as much for as eating.
If you’re going to make a copycat recipe, Stone Cold is def. the way to go. I love that place! This sounds amazing.
Oh that looks delicious! A perfect dessert for a hot summer day on the deck!
This sounds so amazing! What a perfect treat for a hot summer day!
This is going to be a hit around here. What fabulous flavors!
I love no cook recipes. I will try this tomorrow for desert. I am sure it will be a big hit.
Hope you enjoy it!
I also love no cook recipes. I hate using my stove when it’s this hot.
I would love to try this recipe. I have never tried making anything like this before. I would use crasins instead of raisins.
This looks so delicious. I am going to try this on the weekend. I hope mine turns out as good as yours.
wow! I would die from over eating if i even tried to make these. Lol
Always looking for new ways to incorporate oatmeal into my diet!! (Increases lactation.) This looks delicious!
Ah I remember those days! Good luck 🙂
I loved my grandmother’s oatmeal raisin cookies, so now my nostalgia has another outlet for those flavors!!! Thanks!
Aww how sweet!
Yum, I have the ice cream fever right now. What a yummy recipe.
I love Coldstone so I will have to try this! I love the raisins!
Oh this looks sooooo good! You know the way to my heart!
This sounds really good. I have never made my own ice cream. Thanks for the recipe.
THis has to be one of the best ice cream flavors I have every seen a recipe for. What time should I be over for dessert?
Haha anytime! We always have a few flavors in the deep freeze for unexpected guests 😉
Oh this looks so delicious! I’m a big fan of Cold Stone, so this recipe is right up my alley! Delicious
Oh my goodness! This is making me salivate! I’ve never had oatmeal raisin cookie batter but I sure like the sound of this icecream!
Ah this sounds really good right now. With that homemade caramel this would be way too delicious.
It was… sinful and perfect, haha.
This sounds delicious! I’d love to try oatmeal raisin cookie batter ice cream.
Who knew it was so simple to make your own ice cream? I can’t wait to give this a try!
I used to go crazy for this stuff back when I let myself eat Cold Stone lol! Thank you for this recipe! I will def be giving it a try!
Hope you love it!
That looks so good. I love finding fun new ice cream flavors to try.
Yes please! I love making ice cream in the summer! This looks amazing too!
this sounds amazing! I use to love to get a concrete like this before gluten free. This is going to help me recreate it!
I love your creative flavors and variations! My kids would go nuts for this. And you made me LOL with the Williams Sonoma meets Toys R Us description. I can so relate.
I’m glad I am not the only person with a house divided into toys and kitchen gadgets!
This looks delicious and easy to make at home. We love Cold Stone ice cream.
Your Ice cream sounds really delicious, I’m a big raisin fan and love to cook with them, Id rather them than the peanut butter chips 🙂
i love the raisins too 🙂 And as it sits, they plump up more. They’re my favorite part.
I guess my poor neglected ice cream maker is going to get a workout. This looks absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing this!
Holy frozen nom nom fantasticness! That is absolutely Heavenly. Time to bust out the ice cream maker!
Haha, you’re awesome 🙂
This looks fabulous and Oatmeal Raisin is one of my absolute favorites. It has been a long time since I have made some homemade ice cream. I am going to use this as motivation to do so.
Awesome, I hope you love it!
Holy deliciousness! I need this in my life! Going to bookmark for later!
Awesome, hope you love it.
Good. Grief. You are some sort of a master chef disguising yourself as a blogger aren’t you? I knew it!
Haha, well I am actually a personal chef. So I am always in the kitchen.
This recipe looks amazing. We love ice cream. I used to make it with my sister but haven’t in a long time. We have two pear trees that will be ready by the end of the summer. I probably should start finding great recipes for them. Thanks for this recipe it looks delicious and easy to make!
My pleasure! I would be so excited to make a pear ice cream, maybe with a fig compote! or candied walnuts mixed in!
wow, this looks amazing, and not so intimidating. thanks for your tips on what ice cream maker to buy!
Of course 🙂
