by Christina Stanley

What you'll need

  • 1-1/2 cups instant or old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Helpful Tip:

Using instant oatmeal will yield a softer oatmeal square. Using rolled oats will yield a heartier, grainy square. Both are delicious! Add in 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts for a delicious crunch!


Yields 12 servings

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oatmeal, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until just combined. Stir in egg, butter, milk and raisins with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, until just combined. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow 5 minutes to cool before cutting into squares. Squares will keep in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped in foil for 5 days.
