Raspberry Chews

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mandabears

I have been making these yummy fruit bars for years and everyone loves them, except DH who hates raspberries. Most "normal" people love them. This recipe comes from the back of a Pillsbury Plus cake mix box. I hope you like it as much as DH hates it. Yes the oatmeal and butter are listed twice.

These are the perfect alternative to the usual choc &/or peanut butter bar cookies. Very sweet. These sold out quickly at the hosp. bake sale!
