The key to these cookies is using whole grain oats and toasting them in the oven to enhance the flavor. It is also important to process some of the oats before baking, creating an oat flour. This is a bit more labor intensive, but worth the effort. Browning your butter is another flavor enhancer, but if you prefer, you can use softened butter instead. These cookies make great love gifts and freeze well. The flavor combo of the raisin and the chocolate is so nice with the texture of the oats.
