Oatmeal Raisin Blondies
Whip up a quick batch of oatmeal raisin blondies for your kids’ after-school snack! They’re moist and fudge-y, just like your favorite brownie, but with all the warm fall flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon, chewy oats, and plump raisins!
Welp, I’m home from vacation. We had a great time! Lots of sun, surf, and fun. And now I’m not fully back into the swing yet but I do have all the bags unpacked, and laundry’s been washed, folded, and put into drawers.
I can’t believe summer’s almost over already. I just don’t feel quite ready. My kids have one more week of camp, and then a week off (but we’ll be doing a little bit more travel), and then they’re back to school! So today, we’re talking about after-school treats.
These oatmeal raisin blondies are it. It took me a couple of tries before I got the recipe just right, but I absolutely loved the end result. They’re super moist and fudge-y, like your favorite brownie, but instead of chocolate you get cinnamon, brown sugar, chewy oats and plump raisins. They’re pretty much fall in bar form.
