Oatmeal Raisin Bars Recipe

These bars are so popular with my family that I have to hide them if they're bound for a buffet! I got the recipe from a farm wife with growing boys. I always make plenty, because even this big batch disappears quickly around our house.—Annie Beilers, Leola, Pennsylvania

"I made these for our cross country team because of the higher protein count. They loved them. It gets gooey working with melted marshmallows but well worth it."
