Here is a delicious and belly-warming alternative to the more traditional oatmeal raisin cookies.
These yummy cookies are easy to make and flavored with maple syrup, oats, golden raisins and brown sugar.
It's sort of like eating a satisfying bowl of the best oatmeal you have ever tasted, but in the form of a simple drop cookie.
They could also be dressed up a bit for all you chocolate lovers by substituting 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or M&Ms for 1/2 cup of the raisins.
Be creative and do some exploring with your baking. Who knows, you might just end up with your most unusual and delicious treat that can't be found on any recipe! An honest-to-goodness original to truly call your own.
Remember, maple syrup is not the same as pancake syrup. Be sure to use pure maple syrup and not maple-flavored pancake syrup, there's a huge difference in taste and quality.
