  • Nutri-Grain Bars

    Make your own Nutrigrain-style fruit bars for a quick breakfast or snack for the kids during the busy weekdays.

    You'll Need:


    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    1/2 cup almond meal/ flour (substitute plain flour if needed)
    1 1/2 cup of oats
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract

    1 Jar of Jam or Preserves (Fig, Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackberry, blueberry, etc)

    Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, mixing well. Spread half of the mixture into a 9"x9" baking dish that has been buttered, spread a layer of your favorite jam on top, crumble the remaining half of the mixture on top of the jam (It will form a "bar" top when it bakes) Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes. Cool & cut into squares.

    Nutri-Grain Bars (The Quickie Version)
    1 pkg yellow cake mix
    3/4 cup butter
    2 1/2 cups quick oats
    12 ounces preserves or jam
    1 T water

    Preheat oven to 375. Melt butter. Combine cake mix and oats in a large bowl; stir in the melted butter until the mixture is crumbly. Measure half of this mixture (about 3 cups) into a greased 13x9x2-inch pan. Press firmly into pan to cover the bottom.

    Combine preserves and water; spoon over crumb mixture in pan, and spread evenly. Cover with
    remaining crumb mixture. Pat firmly to make top even. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes--top should be very light brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
