Oatmeal and Raisin Spice Cookie Bars

Time: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soft margarine or 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Directions

  • 1 Brush a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with oil, then line with parchment paper or foil, pressing paper down firmly so it stays. Leave a slight overhang of paper.
  • 2 In mixing bowl cream the margarine or butter until light. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix in well.
  • 3 In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Mix into the batter, then stir in the oatmeal and raisins.
  • 4 Press dough evenly into the lined baking pan. (This is the messy part.) The dough will be a bit sticky and there will seem to be almost not enough to fill the pan.
  • 5 Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Bake a bit less for chewier bars, a bit more for crispy bars.
  • 6 Let cool for 3 or 4 minutes, then lift gently out of the pan. Cool a couple more minutes, cut into squares, then cool fully.
