Yum! Even my husband liked these Oatmeal Raisin Bars! Usually, he thinks my baked goods taste too healthy– not enough fat and sugar for his liking– but I finally made a healthy-ish treat that he really loves!
Oatmeal Raisin Bars
Makes 9 bars
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray 8″ X 8″ baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine ingredients until smooth.
- Spread batter in prepared baking pan and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes until bars are cooked all the way through.
- Let bars cool completely in pan before cutting.
yes please…so glad you re-posted, i’ll be making these this week!
YUM! I already have these in my recipe binder from before…they’re awesome! 🙂
So glad you re-posted this! I was just looking for an oatmeal raisin bar recipe, and this was re-posted with perfect timing! 🙂
could you substitue the raisins with chocolate chips? …and maybe add some icing.
I love oatmeal cookies and these look like they would be a healthy alternative:)
stealing! just impulsively bought oatmeal at the grocery store; now i have a project!
Hehhe I usually the same feedback too. 😉 too bad the Mr. does not eat raisin – maybe i could sub chocolate chips… Hmmm
I remember these, they looked good the first time and even better the second.
I am in the process of making these right now – you gave me inspiration! I substituted oats for a whole-wheat/multigrain oatmeal mix, and instead of raisins, I used cranberries. I also added goji berries, sunflower seeds, and pistachios (and some honey). They’re probably less healthy now than the original recipe, but they look and smell tasty! We shall see when they come out of the oven!
These are so good! I just made a batch for some friends and snatched a corner piece for myself. Good thing, too; I’m sure I would have devoured the entire pan by myself! Another great, simple recipe! Thanks for posting!
Just made these – YUM! i didn’t have canola oil, so I used vegetable oil and i added chocolate chips (just because!) and they are so good! thanks for the easy recipe 🙂
They are delicious! I added about 1/8 cup shredded unsweetened coconut and the bars turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!
Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
OHMYGOSH!!! These look SO GOOD!!! I want to eat them RIGHT NOW!!! 🙂
I made these and love them and know exactly what is in them.
Cool website, nice recipes. But I can’t print without printing a bunch of ads and pictures, wasting lots of ink. What am I doing wrong?
I just made these today. I also added 1/2 cup sliced almonds. They are SO good, easy to make, and healthier than a lot of the other recipes out there. Will definitely make again. Thanks!
I made these today and I was surprised at how amazing they turned out. I used 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chocolates. Someone needs to hide them away, before I finish it all in no time!
So glad you liked them! 🙂
It’s an amazing piece of writing in support of all the
online people; they will get benefit from it I am sure.
