Graham Cracker Crusted Chocolate Oatmeal Raisinet Bars

So while I gave up chocolate for Lent, my darling husband gave up asparagus and while I think that’s a lame sacrifice, I can’t resist the smell of chocolate even if I can’t eat it.  I’ve been cooking up a recipe for a cookie with a combination of chocolate, graham cracker, oatmeal and raisins for a while, and I think I’ve got it!  So without any further ado, be introduced to my Graham Cracker Crusted Chocolate Oatmeal Raisinet Bars (I guess I could have just called them Everything but the…, but that’s not very descriptive)


Graham Cracker Crusted Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Bars

1 1/2 cups graham crackers, crushed to crumbs
1 1/4 cups AP flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup salted butter, softened and divided
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups old-fashioned oats, divided
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup golden raisins

Repeal Day Ball in DC!


On December 5th, The DC Craft Bartenders’ Guild is inviting Washington area residents to party like it’s 1933. The group, made up of DC’s top mixologists, is hosting Washington’s only Repeal Day party, taking place at The City Tavern Club from 8 P.M. to midnight. Priced at $90 per person with proceeds benefiting the Club’s Preservation Fund and the Museum of the American Cocktail, this fund raising event honors the 75th anniversary of the date when the 18th Amendment – which established Prohibition in the United States – was repealed.

Guests will be treated to true classic cocktails, recreated by the best in the business, including locals Owen Thompson (Bourbon), Gina Chersevani (EatBar) and Derek Brown (The Gibson). Special guests will include Tony Abou-Ganim (Host of Fine Living Network’s “Raising the Bar”), Jeffrey Morgenthaler (RepealDay.org founder) and other top bartenders from throughout the United States. Hors d’oeuvres will be provided throughout the night by the City Tavern Club and a 1930s jazz band will set the mood and provide the tunes for dancing.  Join us for some old fashioned fun!
