ORIGINAL REVIEW 5/14: I'd agree with others that this is a bar cookie, not a brownie. But it doesn't matter because it's delicious. It's actually just like my oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, only way easier to make -- I added a 1/4 cup of golden raisins, 1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves. I thought it tasted like a bowl of buttery porridge. I use salted butter, so along with the baking soda, I found the addition of so much salt to be too much, but my mother didn't think so; next time I think I'll leave out the salt. I asked my mother if she wanted to add anything to my review and she said, "They were very good. It's all I can do not to eat them all at once!" UPDATE 5/15: I halved the recipe this time to fit into a 9x9-in. pan. We agreed that there weren't enough oats nor raisins last time, so I increased the ratio of both [using 1+1/2 cups of oats and 1/4 cup of raisins for the halved recipe]. I only added a pinch of salt this time. It took 20 minutes for the top of this smaller pan of bars to get golden brown, so I took it out, figuring that if the center wasn't done enough my mom could pop it in the microwave or toaster oven.
