    Homemade Fruit and Cereal Bars

    Granola bars.  A pantry staple in this house for many years.

    I’ve been making the chocolate chip variety for quite a while now, but, have never ventured into the fruit/cereal type..the “Nutri-Grain” bars as some know them as.  Well, between, the price and realizing that hey..they aren’t that healthy,  I was out on the look out for a homemade version and found these!

    They are delicious . Much better  than the boxed and really simple to make…perfect for breakfast on the go or a snack.

    {If you would like a bit thicker bar, follow recipe below and use a 8 x 8 baking dish instead}

    by Table for Seven
    Prep Time: 00:15
    Cook Time: 00:20
    • 1 cup oats (not rolled)
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/4 cup canola oil
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup apple juice
    • 1/2-2/3 cup – jelly, preserves or fruit spread of your choice
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
    Mix oats, flour, brown sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Then, add in egg, oil, vanilla and juice. Stir until well combined.
    Spread approx 2/3 of the mixture on the bottom of the pan (it will be thin).
    Then, spread fruit/jelly over mixture. (Add a tablespoon of water to jelly if needed to make it easier to spread) Spread remaining dough over fruit/jelly.
    It will be messy..use a greased spatula to make it a bit easier.
    If desired, sprinkle the top with dry oats.
    Bake for 20 minutes or until set.
