• 2 Cups California raisins
  • water
  • 1/4 Cup canola oil
  • 1/4 Cup low-fat milk
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 1 Cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 Cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 Cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8×8-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. Measure raisins into 1-quart microwaveable bowl or 4-cup glass measuring cup; add just enough water to cover. Microwave on High for 7 to 8 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool. Combine oil, milk and honey in small bowl; mix well and set aside.

In large bowl, stir flour, wheat germ, oatmeal and baking soda together until well mixed. Add liquids all at once and stir until well blended. Divide into 2 parts, one slightly larger than the other. With dampened or well-oiled fingers, spread the larger half evenly over the bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle raisins evenly on top and crumble the remaining dough over all. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. While still hot, cut into 16 pieces; cool completely before removing from pan.
