White Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars

A couple weeks ago, I realized I couldn’t remember the last time I had oatmeal raisin cookies, but I also quickly decided I wanted to add something. White chocolate seemed like a good call, and these did turn out super delicious. They are quite sweet – the brown sugar really stands out, and every mouthful is just a lovely mess of all the mix-ins. They are soft, sweet, and were quite popular at work.

IMG_5723Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Line 2 jelly roll pans with parchment and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy.

IMG_5537Beat in the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the oats, raisins, and white chocolate chips by hand.

IMG_5538Divide the mixture in half, and spread half in each of the two prepared pans, pressing until thinly spread.

IMG_5556Bake 15-20 minutes, until puffy but cooked looking.

IMG_5557Let cool in the pan 5 minutes, then cut into bars. Let cool completely before removing from the pan.

IMG_5558This makes quite a lot, but you can freeze half the dough, wrapped tightly in plastic, for another time. Let it thaw in the refrigerator, then come up to room temperature until it’s spreadable, then bake as normal.
