Yep, that's my idea of a title. And this is my idea of food photography:
Because these ARE my idea of oatmeal bars!
The kids might've been expecting cookies, so reported that they were "okay, but maybe not that great."
I LOVE THEM. They're exactly, perfectly what I wanted them to be when I threw things into a bowl-- yet in a way, very surprising! They're heavy and dense with nutrition, as I had planned, but not gooey at all. The consistency of a chewy oat bar contrasted with the texture of a crispy one. My mouth was pleasantly confused.
They're only barely sweetened. Exactly what we'd want to bring along on a hike!
My secondary goal was to use the cheapest ingredients possible-- cheapest as in "least expensive", it's still raw honey, nested eggs, organic flour etc. I was going for the most nutrition for the least cost.
5 cups oats
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp baking soda
2 TBSP vanilla
2 cups raisins
I usually don't, but okay. "Mix and bake"
