These are great for snacks or dessert served warm with ice cream. I sometimes substitute 1/2 cup of cocoa for half of the flour for an extra chocolate delight!


Makes 16 bars.

Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch


1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 1/4 cups puffed rice cereal
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate chips


Cream margarine, sugars, honey, vanilla and egg, mixing well. Combine all dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Press into a greased 13"x9"x2" baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 22 to 28 minutes. Let cool; cut into bars. You can substitute peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips for the chocolate if you like.
