Green Tomato Bars

Winter is approaching which means our garden is slowly dwindling into it's impending death! Anyway, there were a few tomatoes left on the bush so I picked them. I really liked these bars when Dianne made them for us. It's a great way to use any unripened tomatoes that you have.


While these bars might not look or sound that great, they really are!

Green Tomato Bars

2 cups green tomatoes, diced
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small pot over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, brown sugar and lemon juice. Cook until the mixture has thickened, about 20-25 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Spray a 9x9 inch baking pan and press half of the mixture into the bottom, layer the tomato mixture on top of that and then top with the remaining oat mixture.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until brown.
