Oatmeal Bar Recipe

Here’s a new recipe I found for Oatmeal Bars.  They’re really delicious and can be customized to suit your tastes.  In my version below, I used Dark Chocolate Chunks.  But, I think using Raisins would probably be better.  Of course, you could use both. HAHA.  Well, they’re great and can be packed into lunches, too!

Oatmeal Bars

First, I preheated the oven to 350 and sprayed a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.  Then, I melted 1 1/2 sticks butter and 1 Tablespoon honey.  The recipe said you could also use maple syrup or pancake syrup.  
To this, I added 1/2 teaspoon Allspice and 1 teaspoon Baking Soda.  
Next add 2 Cups oats, 1 Cup flour, 1 Cup sugar and stir.  Finally stir in 1/4 Cup chocolate chips or raisins.  (I added 1/2 Cup)  
Press this mixture in 13 x 9 pan and bake for 18-25 minutes.  Cut into bars after it is cool.

    These look delicious. My son loves the store bought oatmeal bars, but I would much rather make them for him so I know what’s in them and making sure that they are healthy. I will have to try this recipe soon
