Since Jesse doesn't like oatmeal, I am always trying to find ways to cook it so that he likes it. So we had these for breakfast. They reminded me of a newton. It didn't make a difference though-- they were "tolerable" and he did eat 2- but apparently it's "still oatmeal" oh well- the rest of us enjoyed them!!
I got this recipe off the Martha Stewart website Here is her recipe, but I did change it a little- so this is my version:
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups craisins
1/2 c. water
In sauce pan, bring crasins and water to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Put in food processor of blender until it is only slightly chunky.
Spread 1/2 of the oat mixture in greased 9x13 baking dish, spread cranberry mixture on the evenly, then top with the rest of the oatmeal mixture.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
