Why I Love This Recipe

I have been making these bars for years. They have a great flavour and texture. I would have to say a bit like date bars. Easy to put together. It is great for lunches.

Ingredients You'll Need


2 cups raisins
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp. grated lemon rind
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 cups large flaked oatmeal



Combine first 4 ingredients in medium sauce pan, cook and stir over medium heat until mixture bubbles. Take off heat and cool.

Cream butter, brown sugar and vanilla until fluffy.

Stir in flour and baking soda. Add oatmeal and blend until crumbly.

Reserve 2 cups of this mixture.

Take remaining crumbly mixture and press into a 9" X 13" baking dish.

Take the raisin mixture and spread over the oat mixture to within 1" of sides of pan.

Then take the reserved 2 cups of crumbly mixture and and crumble of the top.

Put in preheated oven 375F. and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook on rack. Cut into Bars or squares.
