Oatmeal Raisin Honey Cookies or Bars


Oats and whole wheat flour...No refined sugar...A pretty healthy treat with a delicious flavor of butter and honey.  Yum!

As a bonus for us tired and/or lazy folks (I'd be both, most days), they're made in one bowl in a matter of minutes!


Oatmeal Raisin Honey Cookies or Bars
Makes 2 dozen.

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup honey
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Grease a 10 by 10 or similar sized baking pan with baking spray.  Or grease a sheet pan, for cookies.

Blend butter and honey together using an electric mixer on high for one minute.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat one minute more.  Add flours, salt, baking powder and cinnamon and mix on low until combined.  Stir oats and raisins into the mix using a rubber spatula.

Spread the dough into your prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Or spoon walnut sized scoops onto a sheet pan and bake for 15 minutes.  Cool completely...and save some for the next day when they're even better!


 I imagine these would be really good with cream cheese frosting!  Enjoy!
