Say that 3 times fast!

Hey friends! Happy Sunday!! I hope you are all having an amazing weekend. I am so excited for this upcoming week. I have so many great recipes to share with you so keep checking back and follow me on Instagram! @glazedandconfused.co

Okay so my manager at work had been asking me to make these cookies for the longest time and I finally decided to do it. They were a huge hit! 

I often use this oatmeal recipe when I make plain oatmeal cookies and sometimes I even make them into a cookie sandwich. Yum! I'll post photos of that soon.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Cups flour

2 Cups Rolled Oats, pulsed to a flour

1 Tbsp baking Powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon

1 Cup salted butter, softened

1 Cup light brown sugar, packed

1/2 Cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1 1/4 Cup of macadamia nuts

1 Cup raisins

1 1/4 Cup white chocolate chips 

More white chocolate for drizzling on top, if desired

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9X13 baking dish with parchment paper or foil. Set aside.

2. Cream together butter and sugars. Add vanilla extract and eggs one at a time until incorporated. Scrape down sides as needed. 

3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon until combined. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until combined. With a rubber spatula, fold in raisins, macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips. Careful, this dough is dangerously good.

4. Place cookie dough in the greased pan and flatten. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until light golden brown. (Time varies depending on your oven but I found that 16-18 minutes was the perfect amount of time for mine) 

5. Let cool and cut. For the white chocolate drizzle: 

Heat extra white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. Stir after each 30 second interval to ensure they won't burn. Once the chocolate is melted, pour in a plastic baggy and cut off one of the tips. Drizzle all over the cookie bars. Let dry and enjoy!!
