Oatmeal Raisin Bars

Reposted from August 18, 2008

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!

  1. So glad you re-posted this! I was just looking for an oatmeal raisin bar recipe, and this was re-posted with perfect timing! 🙂

  2. 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!

  3. TINA!

    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!

  4. 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 🙂

  5. They are delicious! I added about 1/8 cup shredded unsweetened coconut and the bars turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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!
