Deception! But the good kind. The kind that involves chocolate.

"Oatmeal raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues."

This is a popular mantra on Pinterest.  I enjoy oatmeal raisin cookies, but I do understand the disappointment that stirs ones soul when you realize that you won't be partaking in the chocolate you had hoped.  It's a powerful thing.

Anyway, I was thinking about this saying.  See, you don't ever actually SEE oatmeal chip cookies, so I don't understand why anyone ever thinks the raisins are chocolate.  But why don't you ever see it?  So I gave it a shot.


Even more nom.

Conclusion:  DERISHUS.

Okay, so I actually didn't come up with this idea on my own, but it sounds good, right?  I was telling my friend Beth about my blog, and how I've been doing a lot of baking from scratch lately, and she special requested oatmeal chip cookies.  I made them and Hubs loooooved them.  Unfortunately for Beth, who went out of town this weekend, there may not be any left by the time she comes around for them!  They're tasty, and although the recipe I use calls for a stick and a half of butter (yeah, for real) I still count them as a somewhat healthy option, as the oatmeal provides fiber.  Just sub chocolate chips in for raisins in your fav O.R. cookie recipe!

The spoils of baking.
