Cranberry Oat Bar

I just love this time of the year when we can start to bake again without running the air conditioner to get it done. This is a great fall recipe that we always enjoy. It is just packed with flavor, so get  your coffee or tea and lets have a yummy dessert.

 Cranberry Oat Bars



Cranberry Oat Bars
Miz Helen's Kitchen
1 cup Oats
1 1/2 cup Hot Water
1 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil or applesauce
11/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon all spice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pecans chopped
1/2 cup coconut toasted
Mix the hot water with the oats and set aside. Mix the eggs and the sugar until blended well. Add the oil or applesauce and the soaked oats, mix well. Mix the flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, all spice and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well, add the vanilla. Stir in the cranberries, pecans and coconut. Pour into a 9X13 baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
Topping
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecans chopped
Option: 3/4 cup chocolate chips
In a sauce pan melt the butter then add the brown sugar, coconut and pecans and bring to boil. Remove from heat, IF you are using the option of chocolate chips stir the chips in after you have removed the pan from the heat. Cover the HOT cake with the topping and return the cake to the oven under the broiler. Broil for 1 minute, NO LONGER or it will burn.

I Used The Chocolate Chip Option

These Bars Are Yummy!

Oh My Goodness,  With Ice Cream
Enjoy!

I sure am happy that you stopped by to have dessert with me today and hope you enjoyed it. I hope to see you at Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!
Peace and Joy

  4. These look delicious -- do you think I can leave the nuts out and increase the oats?

  5. Hi Sno White,
    Yes I think that would be fine to leave out the nuts and increase the oats, I wouldn't increase more than 1/2 cup, but it should be fine. Thanks for your interest in the recipe, it really is delicious. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
