I made a half batch of this a few days ago in a bread pan lined with parchment paper. Since I didn't have quite enough oatmeal to make half a recipe, I ground up a little bit of Kashi GoLean Crunch in the blender and mixed it in with the oatmeal I had. It worked quite well. My only complaint is that it seemed a little too sweet. Maybe I will try making it with corn syrup next time. I also think craisins might taste good in it; so, I'm thinking about trying that sometime too.
- 2 1⁄2 cups quick oats or 2 1⁄2 cups rolled oats
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 3⁄8 cup margarine, melted
- 1⁄4 cup corn syrup or 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips (optional) or 1⁄2 cup butterscotch chips (optional)
