These rock. We add chocolate chips, peanut butter or nuts to add to them.

This is a very basic recipe that you can personalize and make with ingredients you usually have on hand. I used vanilla flavored syrup and added about 1 cup of mixed chocolate and peanut butter morsels after the mixture had cooked and cooled a little. I baked these in my toaster oven for 22 minutes and think they could have come out a little sooner. They didn't break apart when eaten and were tasty. Next time, I'm trying raisins, chocolate, and cashews.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease and 8×8 pan. In a pan combine the butter, brown sugar, honey, and corn syrup. Stir constantly over medium heat until butter melts, sugar dissolves, and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and add oats. Stir well until oats are well coated. Spread mixture into 8×8 or similar pan. Bake at 350 for 22 minutes. Cool 5 minutes and cut into bars. Cool for about 1 hour more in the pan and then remove bars from the pan.
  2. If you wait to cut and remove the bars from the pan until the pan is completely cooled, the bars will be very hard to remove.
