That moment when you get distracted while building a post and it posts without any text…. yeah… that happened! Sorry! Here is the REAL post complete with our recipe for Sugar Free Oatmeal Raisin Bars and text!
So this past week, Kaitlynn and I made these oatmeal nuggets of gold that we found delightful! Here is our recipe:
Sugar Free Oatmeal Raisin Bars
1 1/2 stick Butter (we used the second half to butter the pan and paper)
3/4 C packed Splenda Brown Sugar
1/4 C Splenda granulated sugar
1 Large Egg
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1 C all purpose flour
2 C Old Fashioned Oats (rolled not instant or steel cut)
1 C raisins (or the whole 12 oz box)
Preheat oven to 350. Butter an 8×8 pan. Lay parchment paper into the pan with at least two sides overlapping to remove the bars with later. Butter the parchment paper.
Blend sugars, butter, egg, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl and set aside.
Mix flour, oats, and raisins in a separate bowl. Fold oat mixture into the butter mixture. Spread evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Moist crumbs will come out on the toothpick when it is done.
Let them cool completely and then cut into 16 squares. The squares are little so if you are feeding very many (they will want more than one) I would double the recipe and bake in a 9×12 pan.
The base recipe for this came from Martha Stewart’s Oatmeal-Raisin Bars.
I cut mine when they were still hot and moist (of course! I rarely follow directions well lol) Below are a few photos of our other cooking escapades this past couple of weeks! Star Wars cookies and beef stew!
