These are great! Used 4 cups of cranberries instead of 5 and it was fine. Used a combo of whole wheat, white, and cake flour.

I don't see how this could possibly be a "Healthy Eating" choice with 1 1/4 cups of sugar & 1/4 cup of cornstarch. :P makes my stomach hurt just reading it.
I used a mixture of oats and nuts and whole wheat flour for the crust. I couldn't find any cranberries in the grocery store so I used raspberries instead. The bar itself had a really nice flavor (perhaps a little tart) and the crust is to dieeee for (I opted to use MOSTLY whole wheat flour) but I had difficulty getting them out of the baking dish! Next time I will use parchment paper for better results.
very yummy, but tart. definitely pretty tart!
These were a really nice change to the processed fruit bars I normally buy my children. They were a nice mix of tangy/tart and sweetness. If you check out the article/video on how to make these you will find the oranges should be added to the cranberries when you are making the fruit filling. The recipe does not mention when to add the oranges. Otherwise these were great. I am going to try the Apple-Cinnamon this weekend.
