Jenny commented on my previous blog asking what I made for the Potluck. Well, here it is.
I made some Crispy Oatmeal Bars for the Caring Place Community Kitchen potluck. We’ve got very short notice on the potluck, just the day before the potluck. I had to look for a recipe which I can make without going out for last minute shopping and I found this Crispy Oatmeal Bars where I had all the ingredients on hand.
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup shortening (or margarine or butter)
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups quick oatmeal (not instant)
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts or raisins or other dried fruit or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

This sounds excellent. We are oatmeal fiends, so I’m bookmarking this one for sure. 🙂
I had a craving for something sweet and had these ingredients on hand. I did use all white sugar because that is what I had. I used the coffee grinder some of the oats and did the same with some hazelnuts and added raisons and chopped hazelnuts. I also used half coconut oil and half butter for my shortening. Came out great!
I like to try this recipe, but I wonder what flour should be used in making this oatmeal bar? Cake flour, all purpose flour or wheat flour?
Hi Frissia, if not specified, flour is deemed to be all-purpose flour. Anyway, I will update the post to be make it clear. You can always substitute it with whole wheat flour for a healthier version.
Can ‘old-fashioned oats’ be used instead of quick?
Hi Courtney, you definitely can substitute quick oats with old fashioned oats which gives you a chewier texture.
