Oatmeal Blob Bars

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. 


4 eggs
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"
