I can never say it enough, but oatmeal is a ce(o)liacs best friend. I snagged this recipe off of Martha Stewart and modified it accordingly. I cut down on the amount of butter and sugar, so the cookies bars aren’t as sweet, but I don’t think it’s missing anything. The original recipe is here.
Here’s my version though –
Cream 1/2 c margarine with 1/2 – 2/3 c brown sugar, depending on how sweet you want the cookie bars to be. Add in 1/2 tsp cinnamon and beat in two eggs. Stir in 1 c of oatmeal until thoroughly mixed, then add in 1 c of GF flour and mix. Add in 1 c more of oatmeal (for a total of two cups) and 2-3 TBL of milk. Finally, add in 3/4 c raisins. The mixture will be very thick.
Pat the mixture into a greased 8″ square pan and bake at 350 F/ 200 C/ Gas Mark 4 for 20-25 minutes.
