Review This Recipe
I could make mother in law of the year!
I was looking for something that my son in law might enjoy on the way to the health club. Raisinets Oatmeal Bars filled the bill. Easy to prepare, easy to carry and so delicious. I did read the reviews before I tried this recipe and reduced the amount of butter and Raisinetsby half. I also reduced the brown sugar by a scant quarter of a cup. They were sweet enough for his taste but not enough to drive his thirst. I think with the reduced amount of butter, Raisinets and brown sugar that these bars would make great lunch box treats.
