Apricot-Oatmeal Bars

July/August 1995

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (38 votes)

These pretty streusel-topped bars are quick to make and easy to transport. Made with unsweetened apricot preserves, they are a good source of potassium and beta carotene.

Quick and tasty

I used a 7x11 pan which was the perfect size and water instead of juice and raspberry preserves instead of apricot but it still turned out excellent

Wonderful taste, easy to make and most of the ingredients I already had on hand. I added a few chopped walnuts to the topping which gave it an added crunch. I used an 8 x 8 pan but cooked them for 40 minutes at 350 degrees to allow for the thicker bar. I will definitely be making these again and maybe next time I will try substituting strawberry preserves for the apricot.

Incredibly delicious and easy! I recommend an 8 by 8 or 9 by 9 pan. I tried using the larger size the first time but some bars were too skinny and I couldn't make it all the way to the edge of the pan with the crumb mixture. They are uniform in the smaller size. I saw a review before recommending keeping the apricot preserves from extending to the edge where they can stick and burn so I stay about half an inch from the edge. I substitute apple cider for the apple juice.

I didn't have the juice so I used 3 T applesauce. These turned out great and were SO quick to make.
