Oatmeal Cinnamon Bars

What you need: 

2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 tablespoons liquid sweetener
1/2 cup margarine, softened

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix oatmeal, vegan sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, raisins, pecans and sweetener.
2. Add softened vegan margarine and mix thoroughly to form a nice mushy mass. Place mixture in a 9" square pan and pat down firmly to flatten the surface.
3. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool a little. Cut into bars and let cool completely.
You can make these into chocolate cinnamon bars by adding 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

The cinnamon bars are so yummy. This is perhaps the best food I have ever made by myself. Thank you people for the ingredients and the information that you people have shared. It was very useful to me and my friends. Scam Omni Tech Support

These were very yummy!  I added a 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds.  My kids couldn't wait until they had cooled, so they ate them with a spoon out of bowls.  They are very sweet, almost too sweet for me, so next time I may use a little less sugar.  They will make a great base for many future granola bar combinations.

OH MY GOD. These were are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used about 1/2 up of chopped pecans, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to replace the raisins, probably 1-2 T of cinnamon, an extra T of butter and about 1-2 tsp of agave nectar, baking them for a total of 22 minutes. I'm eating one right now (I haven't them cool all the way yet ;D) and it's taking me back to something- I just can't remember what!  :-D I'm definitley gonna make these again!!

Whoops, forgot to add: I also used about 1 scant cup of brown sugar. :)>>>

I tried using 1/4 cup of applesauce to replace half the butter, and then I used 3 Tablespoons of maple syrup.

but alas, they got really crispy hard on the edges and bottom after 20 minutes.  Maybe I need to bake them at a slightly lower temp if I go for the low-fat kind???? I don't know.  But what wasn't nearly burnt tasted pretty good.

I would also add more cinnamon.  Like a lot more. :)

I was looking for a basic recipe that I could add ingredients to and this is it! The bars are awesome. I added pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, walnuts and I used agave for the sweetener. I added a little more margarine and sweetener to moisten the mix. This one's a keeper!

So good! Simple ingredients and simply delish. I didn't have any walnuts though so I used chocolate chips instead. Came out great!
