These homemade oatmeal cookies combine both raisins and chocolate to make them a fun cross between two classic cookie recipes! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies meet oatmeal raisin cookies to make oatmeal chocolate covered raisin cookies. They’re a delight.
My biggest pet peeves vary depending upon the day; however, most of the pet peeves that rank high on the list have to do with some sort of combination of human selfishness/laziness.
Today (and three days ago as well), THE pet peeve of the moment is gum–or, more specifically, people who spit their gum onto the ground instead of, oh, I don’t know, placing it in a nearby trashcan, or placing it into a wrapper until there is a trashcan to be found.
You see, not only do I find this gross, lazy, and lacking in common courtesy, without fail, if there is gum somewhere in the near vicinity, I will unintentionally find it and step on it.
It’s not great.
These cookies, on the other hand, are great. A real delight. They have the ability to raise the spirits of anyone experiencing a bout of pet peeve moments.
You can pretty much cover anything in chocolate and I’ll love it (well, within reason–Fear Factor, I’m looking at you) so chocolate covered raisins are a pantry (and midnight snack) staple.
Oatmeal is another pantry staple because I’m 95 years old and have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast 87.3% of the time (totally accurate) so these cookies were a long time coming. It’s actually embarrassing that it took me so long to make them considering I debate with myself more times than you can imagine whether I should make oatmeal cookies with raisins or chocolate chips. #confessionsofacookieaholic
Really though, these cookies are the best of both worlds.
All I want and nothing more.
