These are my favorite raisin bars.


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups raisins
  • ICING:
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons milk


  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar.
  • Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture with water. Beat until crumbly.
  • Firmly press half into a greased 13-in x 9-in x 2-in baking pan; set the remaining oat mixture aside.
  • In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in raisins. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Cool to room temperature; spread over crust. Top with reserved oat mixture and pat down.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Ina small bowl, combine confectioner's sugar and cinnamon; stir in enough milk to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars. Cut and store in an airtight container.
