RECIPE: Cranberry Oat Bars

becky_caDecember 22, 2008

I had these a couple of weeks ago at a friend's cookie exchange party. I made some last week, and they're a hit here too. I think they'd also be good with some chopped nuts added to the filling.

Those sound really good. I have a bag of fresh cranberries in the freezer. Do you think I could sub fresh ones for the dried?

Hmmm, I'm not sure, but I think they'd end up too soggy from the extra moisure in the cranberries.
