About 50 years ago, a girlfriend at school brought oatmeal cookies for lunch made by her Mom. They were a hard, crunchy, bar-like cookie made in a square pan and cut into pieces. I have never found another recipe that comes close and am wondering if anyone else might know how to make these.
Maybe you are looking for Scotch Teas. It is a very simple recipe, but they are good, as well as quick.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
I have made oatmeal bars before from misc. recipes, nothing special.
Need to warn you to pack the mixture tightly in the baking pan or the bars will crumble easily when sliced.
I have a recipe somewhere that I used to make often as a Scout for outings--Hudson's Bay Bread or something like that. It was really good--but a newer, more chewable and tasty version of the old seabiscuits. It was a LOT of oatmeal, minimal liquid (though there was a lot of Karo Syrup involved), and you can add chopped almonds or walnuts or raisins and chocolate chips for flavor.
These cinnamon apple oatmeal bars are easy to make as well as delicious. Make some soon using the recipe found on this page.
