Some flavor combinations just scream “comfort.” Cheese and macaroni noodles. Turkey and stuffing. And then there is the delicious combination of oatmeal and raisins. Whether it is in your morning bowl of oatmeal or that classic childhood snack of an oatmeal raisin cookie, these two ingredients are sure to leave you with the warm and fuzzies. The two flavors evoke that wonderful, comforting feeling brought on by the sheer simplicity of the combination of two such classic ingredients. And even though the flavors are prefectly classic, it doesn’t mean we can’t serve them in a new way. And that is where these Oatmeal Raisin Cookie bars come in. The plump, juicy raisins come alive in the sweet and perfectly spiced oatmeal batter. I made these cookie bars after a long day at work. Because, sometimes a little bit of time in the kitchen is just what you need to relax. For the recipe, head on over to the Patch!
