  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven. Crust should not be fully cooked.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs and remaining brown sugar. Combine the oats, salt, and baking powder; stir into the egg mixture along with the vanilla. Mix in raisins and coconut, if desired. Spread the mixture evenly over the partially baked crumb layer in pan.
  5. Bake 20 minutes more. Cool, and cut into squares.

These tasted great but what a mess coming out of the pan and trying to eat. I didn't use the "optional" coconut or raisins. I would imagine they are what holds the recipe together and probably...

Very good! Grease the pan with butter generously before baking and they will not sick. Even easier to get out of pan if you use a pyrex dish.

My new favorite recipe! These are soooo good, I wish I'd tried them sooner. Followed the recipe exactly as written. One thing to note - after you've beaten the eggs combine the rest of the in...

This recipe was DELICIOUS - I made it for a cake sale and they sold out within half an hour! The only thing I would suggest is can look a bit plain, so I drizzled melted plain chocolate over the...


I've made these squares several times now, and have often taken them to gatherings. They are so quick and easy to make - truly a fool proof recipe. Every time I've taken them to a function I've ...
