Honey Raisin Bars

Another old Southern Indiana Recipe from the days of my youth--too many years ago!


  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 2 cups uncooked oats
  • 1 cup seedless raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Cream the honey, sugar, butter and egg together. Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon, and flour together; stir into the creamed mixture. Add the oats and raisins, stir in. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the greased cookie sheets. Bake on the upper shelf of the oven for 12 to 14 minutes at 375 degrees. Cookies should be lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
