oatmeal breakfast bars.

Oatmeal Breakfast Bars from Jenn:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup quick oats
2/3 up packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
Desired filling (I use cooked fruit or jam)

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup of the flour mixture. Press remaining flour mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9x2 inch baking pan. Spread with desired filling. Sprinkle with reserved flour mixture.

Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is golden. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Makes 25.

Apple filling

Peel, core and chop 2 medium apples. In a medium saucepan combine apples, 2 T sugar, 2 T water, 1 T lemon juice and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer 8-10 minutes, or until apples are very tender.
