Cranberry Sauce Oatmeal Bars

Another use for the home made (or bought) cranberry sauce in your fridge or pantry.

Cranberry Sauce Oatmeal Bars … a switch up of Date Oatmeal Bars

There are a lot of recipes for these bars, on line. I found this one on the “Cook the Story” blog. Instead of a full tray (9″ x 13″), I made a half batch in my 8″ x 8″ glass pan. I made no other changes.

      1. I was tempted to buy a package or two of dried dates when I went grocery shopping today and cook them up for a date puree version cause I really like date oatmeal turnovers and this would give me a similar taste, I think.

        And then I bought a package of potato chips (crisps) … so much for trying to eat more sensibly. πŸ™‚

  1. This brought back a million memories of trying to find recipes for leftover cranberry sauce (without the internet). The best one was for a raspberry bar reinvented as cranberry bars from a cookbook my brother gave to me when I was 12; the inscription read, β€œthis gift is really for me, in the long run!”
    Your bars look delicious, a perfect treat to go with coffee.

    1. For one or 2 people, a half batch (12 pieces) is perfect, I think. The bars are best just a bit warm. There’s texture and just a hint of sweet/tart. I eat them with a cup of coffee but tea would be great too.
