Homemade Granola Bars

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup melted butter or margarine, cooled
1/2 cup icing sugar
1-2 teaspoons water

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line 9x13" pan with parchment paper, leaving overhang to remove bars easily.
2. In a large bowl mix together rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, sugar, raisins and cinnamon. In another whisk egg then add vanilla and melted butter. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir until crumbly mixture forms.
3. Press mixture evenly across the bottom of prepared pan. Bake 20 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Let bars cool completely at room temperature.
4. Remove bars from pan and slice into 15 bars (divide rectangle into 3 sections then cut each section into 5). In a small bowl mix together icing sugar and water until smooth. Drizzle each bar with icing and let stand 5 minutes for icing to set. Serve & enjoy!

Customize these granola bars by adding other dried fruits, seeds, and nuts!
