This is a great treat and with the oatmeal, wheat flour, egg beaters, and canola oil is heart healthy as well. I have also tried it with applesauce instead of the oil and it turned out fine as well.

These are just tolerable for us; they are soft with a heavy, cakey texture. But I probably made some bad substitutions. I used oat bran instead of wheat germ, and didn't have enough rolled oats so had to use partly quick oats. I did use whole wheat PASTRY flour, which is much lighter than the average wheat flour. I also subbed applesauce for the oil, and that made them just a little rubbery. I think what saved them for my husband and I is we used chopped dried cherries instead of raisins. The tart cherries are wonderful in bars!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Generously grease a 9x13 inch-baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, cinnamon, flour, raisins and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in the honey, egg, oil and vanilla. Mix well using your hands. Pat the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
  2. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bars begin to turn golden at the edges. Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars while still warm. Do not allow the bars to cool completely before cutting, or they will be too hard to cut.
