These are wonderful, chewy ‘brownies’ except that they are made with oatmeal instead of chocolate. Add your favorites (nuts, chocolate chips, chocolate candies, toffee chips) and create a truly delicious snack.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. 2 In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until thoroughly mixed and creamy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until well mixed, and mix in salt, baking soda, baking powder, flour, rolled oats, plus chocolate chips, raisins, and chopped nuts if desired. Mix well to moisten all ingredients, and spread into the prepared baking pan.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before cutting into bars.

  1. I've been preparing this recipe for two years. Raving reviews from friends. Great texture. I use rolled oats not instant. For a smoother texture you can used instant or grind some or all of the oats in a food processor. I also use whole wheat flour. I have made it with lots of flavor variations. - Read more ...
  2. These are amazing! So quick and easy to throw together and wonderfully moist and chewy. I added milk chocolate chips no nuts or raisins since they were made for a function and I was worried about nut allergies and raisin haters! I left only one on the table for my hubby and he was ticked - Read more ...
  3. They were okay. Even with semisweet chocolate chips and macadamia nuts they were a little bland. Maybe better with dried fruit pieces?
  4. These are simply delicious! They are sweet and chewy! I added chocolate chips and coconut. A real KEEPER for sure!
  5. the batter was great the cooked batch was better. They are great, i put chopped apple, craisins, chopped walnuts, and chopped banana, awsome!!!!
  6. The bars are baking right now but I just had to comment that the batter itself was great. I actually just added some ginger powder and semisweet chocolate chips. I think it will be a winner. Thank you for the recipe!
  7. This seemed more like a bar cookie rather than a 'brownie', but it doesn't matter...this tasted great! I used butter flavored shortening, mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans (just used what I had in the house). I also baked it a little differently; 20 min at 350, the middle was still soft so I lowered - Read more ...
  8. Even though in the recipe I say to add your choice of ingredients... (choc chips, nuts, raisins, toffee bits, etc.) the truth is that I personally prefer them with NOTHING. I love to eat them in the morning with a nice cup of creamy latte or cappuccino. That way I can enjoy the flavor of - Read more ...
  9. So good it makes you want to say it with your mouth full! I halved the recipe, used an 8X8 pan, added some pecans and some milk chocolate chips. I didn't over do it though because I really wanted to taste the oatmeal in them, which I love. I predict my husband and I will - Read more ...
  10. Delicious! Great texture, easy to make, and would be the good base for a lot of variations. Next time I think I'll try toffee bits and milk chocolate chips. And I think they'd be delicious without any chips added but with a teaspoon of cinnamon.
