I have been craving an oatmeal raisin cookie lately. It’s all I could think about all day long so I finally decided to give in to the urge to bake some. However, these are not your typical oatmeal raisin cookies.
First off they aren’t in classic cookie form, I opted to make them into bars. There was no particular reason other than the fact that they are a little thicker and more substantial. The next deviation was the addition of brown butter, and let me tell you I will never make an oatmeal raisin cookie without it again. It adds a totally different flavor profile with a toasty, sweet brown butter that just seems to elevate the cookie.
While being a little different from the classic they still possess all the components that makes an oatmeal raisin cookie great. They are full of warm cinnamon, chewy oats and juicy raisins truly making these cookie bars a delicious treat.
