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.

1 cup butter -- softened

Combine butter and brown sugar; stir in oats, 1 1/2 cups flour and baking soda until crumbly. Press half the mixture into an ungreased 13x9 baking pan, setting remaining half aside; bake at 350F until golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients together; spread over crust. Sprinkle reserved oat mixture on top; bake 25 to 30 additional minutes. Cool completely. Slice into bars to serve.

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?


RE: RECIPE: Cranberry Oat Bars

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