Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Bars

I found this recipe a couple of weeks back and tried it last week.  Oh my these little bars are very good! I made mine in the Pampered Chef Brownie pan, but you could easily make them in a muffin/cupcake tin too!

My daughter was here visiting when I made these and the smell of them brought her downstairs to see what smell so good, lol!  I used dried cranberries because I had just gotten a big bag at a local warehouse store to try this recipe with.

 Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Bars

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 cups quick cooking (not instant) oats
1 1/2 cups raisins (or add cranberries, chocolate chips etc..)

Preheat oven to 350F. Whisk together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and spices in Classic Batter Bowl.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and stir in vanilla, egg and melted butter until smooth. Stir in oats and raisins until they are evenly distributed.
Use large scoop and put one scoop into each well of the brownie pan. Push down with your fingers to flatten.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, let cool a few minutes before turning pan over onto cooling rack. Makes about 21 squares.

Now when I made these, I only got 16 little bars out of the recipe, so the number you get may be more or less.

Thanks for stopping by,  Mary
