These are really good for a sweet tooth. They are relativly low in fat and sodium. You could add chopped nuts too, but I prefer them without.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine butter and brown sugar until crumbly. Add egg and mix well. Gradually beat in coffee.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add to the coffee mixture; mix well. Stir in raisins.
  3. Transfer to a 13x9x2-inch baking pan coated with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees 18-20 minutes, until edges pull away from sides of pan and toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool 5 minutes.
  5. In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and enough water to make it spreading consistency. Spread on warm bars.

I love these bars! They aren't overly rich like some bars can be. The coffee flavor is subtle and the recipe wouldn't be near as good without it. For whatever reason, I needed to bake them for about 35 mins and they wanted to stick to the pan. Next time, I think I'll line the pan with parchment paper. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe.

Well, I can say I can't give this a real fair review as I totally messed up the recipe by adding a full stick of butter.:-) So that's why the 5 stars:YUMMY: Maybe a blessing, maybe not. This is what happens when I'm attempting to make more than one recipe at a time. Anyway, these are heavenly little bars Sweety. I did not make the icing for the top and instead spinkled with a mixture of cinnamon/sugar. I didn't think it needed anymore fat grams!! Made for 123 HitWonders and March's CoffeePhoto Tag~
