Chewy Oatmeal Bars

1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. vanilla extract
5 T. butter (at room temp.)
1/4 c. raw honey
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. raisins, nuts, or chopped fruit (or sometimes I add 1/2 c. chocolate chips as a special treat)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325*.
Lightly coat and 8x8" pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir til well blended.

Press mixture firmly into pan.

  4. These sound good - similar to an oatmeal bar that I make with a slightly different twist. I copied the recipe down because I just might try it in the future.

    Thanks for sharing. :)
