Cranberry Oatmeal Bars
Serving Size: 1 bar
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup 100% juice (orange, pineapple, apple, or cranberry)
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2/3 cup margarine, softened (about 10 1/2 tablespoons)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly coat a 13"x 9"x 2" baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Combine the cranberries and juice in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 30 seconds. Let stand 10 minutes.
- Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- 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.
- Gradually stir in flour mixture, mixing well.
- Stir in cranberry mixture and nuts if desired. Spread the dough evenly in prepared pan.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the center is set. Cool completely on wire rack before cutting.
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 dried cranberries provide fruit. Try this with raisins if your family likes them.
