    My new favorite cookie bars

    I have made these with the applesauce, with orange marmalade, raspberry jam as well as apricot. Very easy and very yummy.

    Oatmeal Bars

    Cook Time 40 mins
    325 degree

    Delicious layers of oats with an applesauce filling.
    • 1 cup butter cut into small pieces
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 cup oats
    • 2 cups applesauce
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1. In a food processor bowl, add butter, brown sugar and flour. Pulse until mixture forms small, pea sized crumbs. (or use a pastry cutter)
    2. Add cinnamon and oats. Pulse just until incorporated.
    3. Place half the oat mixture in a lightly greased 9x13" baking dish. Press mixture down with your hands.
    1. In a small mixing bowl combine applesauce and cinnamon.
    2. Pour filling on top of oat mixture. Spread evenly over oat mixture.
    3. Sprinkle remaining oat mixture over applesauce.
    4. Allow bars to fully cool before slicing into 12 equal pieces.

    That sounds awesome! I have a jar of apricot preserves in my pantry right now.

    I made banana bread today and went to order more flour on my Instacart account and they are sold out! That's good people are getting back in the kitchen though.

      That sounds good - might have to give it a try. It's nice to find recipes using things I normally keep in the cupboard. I made cookies on Sunday.
