Oatmeal Cinnamon Bars
2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 tablespoons liquid sweetener
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix oatmeal, vegan sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, raisins, pecans and sweetener.
2. Add softened vegan margarine and mix thoroughly to form a nice mushy mass. Place mixture in a 9" square pan and pat down firmly to flatten the surface.
3. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool a little. Cut into bars and let cool completely.
You can make these into chocolate cinnamon bars by adding 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.
