Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly coat a 13"x9"x2" baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine the cranberries and juice in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 30 seconds. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. Beat the brown sugar and margarine together with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well blended. Beating the eggs adds lightness and volume to the bars.
  5. Gradually stir in flour mixture, mixing well.
  6. Stir in cranberry mixture and nuts if desired. Spread the dough evenly in prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the center is set. Cool completely on wire rack before cutting.

Tips

This is a great snack. Package bars in sandwich bags for take and go snacks or breakfast bars.

The quick oats are a whole grain and the juice and dried cranberries provide fruit. Try this with raisins if your family likes them.

Don't forget to use nonstick cooking spray!
