Oatmeal berry bars

These bars burst with fresh fruit. Enjoy one for an on-the-go breakfast or snack.


Cookie crust and crumble topping

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold

Berry filling

6 ounces (3/4 cup) raspberries
6 ounces (3/4 cup) blueberries
Juice of a half lemon
1/2 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine first six ingredients of the cookie crust and crumble topping.
  3. Using a knife, cut butter into about 20 pieces. Add to mixture.
  4. Combine mixture using your fingers or a pastry blender. Mixture should be well-blended but still crumbly.
  5. Grease a 9x13-inch pan with butter.
  6. Take a little more than half of the mixture and press it into the bottom of the pan. Set aside extra mixture to use as crumble topping.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until crust is golden and puffed. Set aside to cool.
  8. Meanwhile, place all berry filling ingredients in a medium saucepan and simmer until thickened. You will have about 1 1/4 cups of berry sauce.
  9. Spread filling over crust and sprinkle with remaining crumble topping.
  10. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden.
  11. Let cool for 10 minutes. Cut into 2x2-inch pieces. Serve warm or cold.
