Oatmeal Bars

I get emails from Mr. Food. When I saw this recipe I decided to try it and loved it. I added raisins both dark and light, toffee bits with the chocolate chips. These would be great for kids lunches and to take for snack on any outing.

Oatmeal Bars


3/4 cup butter
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. allspice
2 cups large flake oats
1 cup unnbleached flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup each of chocolate chips, raisins, toffee bits and golden raisins


Preheat oven 350ยบ.
Lightly grease 9 X 13" baking dish
In small sauce pan melt butter and syrup over low heat.
In large bowl, combine butter mixture, baking soda and allspice; mix well and let cool.
In medium bowl combine flour, oats, sugar and chocolate chips, raisins, toffee bits.
Add the flour to the butter mixture and mix well.
Press dough into prepared baking dish.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cool for 10 minutes then immediately cut into bars; then let cool completely then cut again.
Do not miss this step as they will be to hard to cut after.

These look good like putting toffee bits in them... from your comments these do not end up soft must be crispy. Sounds yummy.
