Oatmeal peanut butter bars

Published On: Aug 19 2011 01:58:03 PM CDT

1 c. creamy peanut butter
½ c. packed brown sugar
½ c. corn syrup
1/3 c. butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/3 c. rolled oats
½ c. flaked coconut
½ c. sunflower seeds
¾ c. raisins
½ c. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit

In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, the butter or margarine, the brown sugar, the syrup and the vanilla until smooth.

Add all the other ingredients. Stir well.

Press the mixture into 13 x 9 inch greased pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool on wire rack before cutting into bars.

These will keep up to two weeks, tightly sealed, but I'm betting they won't be around your house that long!

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
