Bagged bars of Oatmeal Raisin Banana Bars, all sealed up, soon to be frozen, and ready to go

Oatmeal Raisin Banana Bars

1 stick butter
1 cup sugar

The butter was hard to work, so I put it in the oven for 10 minutes at 170° for a 'thick' melt.

1 cup flour
2 eggs (one would likely work)

I should have mixed the eggs in first, but I added the flour first, so both got mixed in together. Looked like short bread batter.

2 bananas (I made this to 'use up' the bananas)
4 tablespoons cinnamon (actually, I just poured it on, who cares about measuring; as in, I used a bunch of the stuff)

I mixed it up again; and it was looking good.

2 cups oatmeal
1 cup raisins (or about half of the pound package, because who has time to measure)

I then spread it out into a rather large pre-buttered baking dish, because I wanted them thin.

2 teaspoons salt (or to taste, so none would be fine, but not as tasty, sprinkled over the top)

And finally, I cooked for a half hour at 350°, because that both sounded and looked about right... of course, I forgot to set a timer, so who knows how long they really cooked for.

Welcome to my world.

I mean, after that, I simply turned off the oven, walked away, came back at some indeterminate time (say fifteen minutes) and opened the oven door. So, in the end, variable heat was applied for up to an hour.

Oh, I almost forgot. But then again, this is almost, like, exactly the type of detail I'm looking to avoid. Anyhow, here it is. After an hour of cooling, I sliced the bars, waited another hour or so, flipped them over. And a few hours after that, bagged them up and froze the lot.

These are tasty.

The salt on top really does hit the spot.
