Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Bars

July 28, 2012Teresa

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Bars are the ultimate Oatmeal Raisin cookie! Do you like oatmeal raisin cookies? These fabulous bars are just one step better than oatmeal raisin cookies with the addition of cinnamon chips.

I like making them into bars instead of cookies. They are really quick and easy to prepare this way. I have sprinkled them with powdered sugar or sprinkled more cinnamon chips on top. Either way is wonderful.

I’m always looking for new cookies to bake with new flavors, textures and chewiness. These lovely Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Bars sure do it. I used golden raisins instead of regular raisins for this recipe. It gave these oatmeal bars a lovely essence as well.

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Bars are straight off the Hershey’s cinnamon chip package. Although they call them Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies. They are a really tasty treat that satisfies your sweet tooth cravings in a big way. These bars can be changed up a little by adding nuts, changing out the raisins for craisins or apricots, or having a nice cinnamon glaze over top.

These are great cookies for holiday baking, tailgating parties, potlucks or simple family dinners. If you love the flavors of cinnamon and raisins, you will love these cookie-bars.

When I initially posted this recipe in July 2012, I had only been food blogging a month. I rushed through taking pictures so they ended up blurry, grainy, with poor lighting, and unappealing.

I recently remade these fabulous cookies (October 2014) for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2014. I retook the pictures so you can enjoy what these bars really look like.  I highly recommend them if you enjoy cinnamon, raisins and oatmeal in cookies.
