My husband grew up eating these oat squares. His mama always used to make them and when we got married she gave me the recipe and I have to say that I quickly came to love them too. They are super simple and quick to make and perfect for when you’re craving something sweet but not too complicated.
Here’s the recipe:
2 cups of oats
1/2 cup butter melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Combine oats and brown sugar in a bowl. Mix well.
Add melted butter and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
Spread mixture evenly on the bottom on a baking dish. You want a fairly thin layer (maybe 1/2 inch max.).
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
Squares will be soft but will harden on cooling. Allow to cool fully before cutting into squares with a sharp knife and removing.
Now try to eat just 1 square!
