- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I prefer Saigon cinnamon, more fragrant)
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 3 cups uncooked old fashioned whole oats or quick oats
- 1 cup raisins (red)
- 1 cup chocolate chips, nuts or chopped fruit, optional *See notes
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium-large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, whisk to combine.

- Add the flour mixture in gradually until combined.
- Add the oatmeal and raisins and slowly beat to combine.
- In an ungreased 9x13 inch baking pan (alternately, you can use parchment paper to line the 9x13 inch pan), press the cookie bar dough into the pan evenly. You can use an offset spatula to help spread the dough.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown. When it's done, cool completely in the pan on a wire rack or trivet when done. When it's cool, cut into 24 bars.
- Recipe Yield: Makes 24 bars
