      Sweet but so good. I love the top as it gets a sugar crisp crumbly layer. If I knew for sure that I would get that same top, I would reduce the sugar by half a cup, but I will just drink a glass of cold milk instead of tampering with the recipe. I did use 1/4 cup nuts, and 1/4 cup coconut, and the 1/2 cup raisins... I will bring some to mom, nothing is too sweet for her, she will just say yum, and pop another in her mouth. I have made other buttertart bars but none with oatmeal, but again you would never know that was in there either, and again on the other recipes, I never got this layer on top that was crispy. Love it. Oh I must also say, they do not taste like Canadian butter tarts, but still a good bar. This is the same recipe as Buttertart Treats

      Oh my. These are so very delicious! They're sweet (they're a buttertart, what do you expect?), but so decadent! I think next time I make them I'll try pecans instead of raisins for a change. The coconut was a nice addition, too. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Right down my alley, since I'm a big fan of both coconut AND raisins (although I'd be most happy to make these another time with dried cranberries or cherries! Anyway, the recipe, as is, makes for a GREAT TASTING bar, one that I'd be happy to share with other NEXT TIME I MAKE THEM, since I ate most of these myself! (Your husband has GREAT taste!)
