Oat Bars

Post by littlemiss63 » Thu May 09, 2019 4:39 pm

Oat Bars Recipe

1 cup brown sugar
3 1/2 cups oats (minute or regular)
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 tsp vanilla

Mix dry ingredients first, then mix in butter and vanilla. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. Press into a buttered 9" square pan. Bake at 350º for 15 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.

Note: You could use a wooden spoon, but the hands are the best tools to mix together.

This recipe sounds like my Mom’s Congo Bars she would make for us. I have GF oats (and can make my own self-rising flour), so I’m going to try making these. I did offer yesterday to make dessert cookie bars for our family reunion potluck next month.

Rinty, I haven't. I'm not a big fan of date, but raisins I love. Good suggestion.
