Seeing as these are OATMEAL chocolate covered raisin cookies I assume they are prefect for breakfast. I mean I eat oatmeal with raisins for breakfast sometimes? Generally without all the butter and sugar… well usually with sugar. Plus it’s not like I would eat cookies every day for breakfast, there are way too many other breakfast foods I would miss.
Anyway as you recently are aware of my twitter addiction/problem it’s no surprise I saw the idea for these cookies from @SallysBakeBlog on Twitter. Sally tweeted a link to her Thick Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies and I told her what an ingenious idea I thought it was. I also said I was going to have to make them as soon as possible! And I did.
I didn’t use the same recipe from Sally’s blog, instead I used the Oatmeal Cookie recipe from Flour by Joanne Chang and just swapped regular old raisins for chocolate covered ones! Also over here in the UK we don’t get Raisinets so just a bag of regular no brand name chocolate covered raisins were used.
They were probably some of the best Oatmeal Raisin cookies I have ever had. The thing is they are so simple. Cookies are pretty versatile and the only way to make a cookie recipe really special is just by changing what you put into them. I won’t be posting Joanne’s cookie recipe, but David Lebovitz has, the link is in the notes below!
