Chewy Oatmeal Squares

Jana here with a recipe I had to share!  I recently had a baby, and was looking for some extra snacks to eat while I am feeding the baby in the middle of the night. I bought a few boxes of oatmeal squares and granola bars, but was unhappy with the ingredients. So my husband and I started brainstorming, and came up with this delicious recipe!

Chewy Oatmeal Squares

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup cane sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
6 cups oatmeal (steel cut or old fashioned)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 - 1 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

2. Mix the wet ingredients (butter, oil, honey, eggs, vanilla) in a stand mixer (or with a handheld mixer).

3. Add the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, oatmeal, baking soda, cinnamon, salt) and mix well. Last, add the raisins and stir.

4. Pour onto the baking sheet, and spread evenly. Press mixture firmly onto baking sheet to compact it.

5. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
