Strawberry-Apricot Bars

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 c. oatmeal
  • 1/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 6 T. chilled margarine
  • 1/2 c. strawberry preserves (I use all fruit)
  • 1/2 c. apricot preserves (I use all fruit)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8 x 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

Combine the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, nutmeg and margarine in a food processor. Pulse 4-6 times or until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Press 2/3 of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the strawberry and apricot preserves in a small bowl. When the crust has been removed from the oven, carefully spread the preserves over the hot crust and sprinkle the remaining oatmeal mixture over the preserves. Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the preserves are bubbly. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
