I love oatmeal raisin cookies. I hate oatmeal. I know it is good for you and it is good to have different breakfasts in your arsenal so it doesn’t get boring. I found this recipe over at Macheesmo last year I think. It was the first one that even remotely looked appetizing. I made it and loved it. I didn’t put it in milk, but I did throw it in the toaster oven in the morning to get heated up. I haven’t made it for a while, so I am excited about this rendition. I added something a little extra.
Ingredients – missing eggs of course. What will you do if I ever have an ingredients picture with all of the needed items?? I would probably pass out
Mixing the liquid ingredients. I used my immersion blender to mix everything. I don’t get to use it nearly enough and I thought it would help. I also was pouring melted butter into eggs and didn’t thing I could mixed fast enough so the eggs didn’t scramble. This is also the step that I realized that I forgot the nutmeg. Not a huge loss to me, since I am not a huge fan
I added these with the oatmeal – so my thumb’s a little funky, so what??:
And mixed it all up and put it into a square baking pan. I think next time I want to try baking it in a pie pan.
You store it over night and bake it in the morning. I waited until after I was done with work to bake it. I didn’t want to take the time to bake it in the morning. It is hard enough getting out of bed to go to the gym let alone do some baking:
I usually cut it into 8 slices and eat it with some milk. I wrap it in foil so that I can bake/heat it up in the toaster oven at work. If I remember correctly, it is pretty filling. I am excited about the addition of raisins to this round of baking. It was definitely good enough to add into the handwritten cookbook.
On a not completely unrelated note, I found out that if you bake something with garlic and something resembling cookies, the tastes do not meld as you would think.
