    Cupid's Custard-b101-fig-bars-sm.jpg Make your own Nutrigrain-style fruit bars for a quick breakfast or snack for the kids during the busy weekdays.


    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.
