  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture with water. Beat until crumbly. Firmly press half into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan; set the remaining oat mixture aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in raisins. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Cool to room temperature; spread over crust. Top with reserved oat mixture and pat down. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a small bowl, combine confectioners; sugar and cinnamon; stir in enough milk to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars. Cut and store in an airtight container.

These are really good! The only change I made was to add cinnamon to the raisins as they were cooking and to use half white flour and half whole-wheat flour. I think that next time I'll halve th...

Yum! I used apple juice instead of water in the raisin mixture & cut the sugar a little, added the suggested 1 t. cinnamon, too. Sprinkled choc chips on the top, let melt & spread in lieu of th...

Just made these again. One of our favorites. I cook the raisin filling first, so that it has time to cool while I prepare the oatmeal mixture. Thanks for sharing!

These turned out very good and I'll definitely make again.

I added one egg to the oatmeal mixture and used a 9 X 9 pan. Also, used way less frosting. They were good and since I have lots of raisins left, I'll make them again!

Thanks for a great basic recipe. I have added dried cranberries to the filling which gives it some tartness. For a different flavor add grated orange rind. A definite keeper. Raisin lovers m...
