Cookie Corner: Oatmeal Bars

So I was bored yesterday and procrastinating when I decided to experiment with an old favourite- oatmeal raisin cookies! I made these into a bar that was delicously cakey and oatey at the same time!
The whole pan got eaten within a few hours yesterday and got rave reviews! Anytime you want a break from your basic oatmeal cookies try these!

1/2 cup soy butter spread
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 c all cake flour
3 c rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs ( I used 3 egg whites)
1 tsp baking soda
1 c raisins
1 c cranberries
1 cup sliced almonds
Preheat to 375
Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla stirring or beating until smooth with all bumps gone!
Combine flours, and baking soda, and then cup by cup add flour mixture to sugar mixture. Mix and then add oats. Once everything is well coated and a sticky batter has formed add cinnamon, raisins, cranberries and almonds!
Pour mixture into a greased baking dish and bake 25 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and no dough comes out!
Let cool then cut and enjoy!!
