Yum! Even Mal liked these Oatmeal Raisin Bars! Usually, he thinks my baked goods taste “too healthy,” which is sometimes true (usually my recipes don’t have enough fat and sugar for his liking), but tonight, I finally made a healthy non-healthy-tasting treat!
Oatmeal Raisin Bars
Makes 9 bars
2 cups dry oats
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil

Hot and fresh right out of the oven…
Dinner tonight was a open-face BLT with ground pepper and a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, snap peas, red onions, almond slices, and a scoop of Claire’s relish. All of those veggies filled me right up!
Dinner from above with iced water…
Time for some reading in bed. I’m sleeping in tomorrow! Yay! 🙂
