These are what I brought to the swap with mini choc. chips + butterscotch firmed in on top.

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
(Like chewy granola bars, but more cookie like, this is the lower fat version my kids created while in 4-H. I made the full 1 cup oil version at the swap with 1 cup water because it bakes in 15-20 minutes & thought you all might prefer the full version. Either way, it always gets eaten.)

cup oil
1 cups water
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 T. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 ts soda
1 tsp baking powder (or just use tsp soda + tsp cream of tartar)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
6 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 325. Combine oil, sugars, water, & vanilla. Beat well. Add flour salt, soda, baking powder, and cinnamon to the first mixture & mix well. Stir in oats, raisins, then chocolate chips. Spread in a well-greased 9x13" pan and bake for 40-45 minutes until dough firms up and is brown around edges. Will firm up more when cooled, so don't overbake. **Wait to cut into bars when cooled. Bars remain soft & chewy.

Makes 32. Store in airtight container up to a week. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.
