Grape and Raisin Oat Bars
1 cup flour
3/4 cup beer
2 cups molasses
1 pound grain
1/2 cup raisins
Mix the flour, beer, and molasses thoroughly. Add grain to mixture slowly and mix well. Finally, mix in raisins.
Pour this mixture into an oiled 12-by-15-inch pan, and place in a 250°F oven.
When the mixture starts to firm up (about 25 minutes), remove the pan and cut the contents into bite-sized pieces. Then, return the pan to the oven and bake until the treats are mostly dry and fairly firm (roughly 40 minutes).
After removing the pan from the oven, let it cool before removing the treats.
Place the treats on cooling racks overnight.
