This is a thick, satisfying, tender, and chewy bar cookie/blondie. A perfect holiday recipe! Don't overcook, as you want these to be moist. I got this recipe from a great online blog, "Baking Bites".
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
- 1 1⁄2 cups raisins
- Preheat oven to 350°F Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper (optional, but aids in getting cookies out of pan).
- Whisk together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and spices in a large bowl.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and stir in vanilla, egg and melted butter until smooth. Stir in oats and raisins until they are evenly distributed.
- Pour dough into prepared pan and spread into a even layer with a spatula or your fingers. Bake for 22-26 minutes, or until bars are set and the center no longer looks wet. Edges will be golden brown. Cool pan on a wire rack before slicing. Cut into rectangular bars to serve.
Made these cookies for a potluck at church and they were a huge hit!!! So tasty, soft and chewy. I would suggest making a double batch of these cookies, as they disappear quickly! Thanks for a great recipe that we will use again and again.
Delicious & less time-consuming than cookies. I added nutmeg & doubled the cinnamon. The "blondie" in the description led me to expect a denser, cookie-like result, but mine was very cake-y.
Simply wonderful! Love the chewy texture, absolutely perfect. This replaces my old oatmeal cookie recipe. ETA: I used regular oats (not quick) and it worked great!
