Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil up over the edges of the pan. Lightly coat foil with cooking spray; set aside.

  • In a large bowl combine oats, all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, brown sugar and apple pie spice. Using a pastry blender, cut in light butter until mixture is crumbly. Transfer 3/4 cup of the crumb mixture to a small bowl; stir in almonds. Set aside.

  • Press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

  • In a small bowl stir together the preserves and almond extract. Carefully spread preserves evenly over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture; press lightly.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Lift from pan using foil and cut into bars. Wrap remaining bars in foil to store.


Tip: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for the brown sugar for this recipe.

I have no idea why you would recommend NOT using a brown sugar substitute for this dish. I substituted almond flour for the whole-wheat and 1/2 cup Sukrin Gold for the brown sugar. It turned out lovely and delicious and a great dessert without my body going through inflammation and a jump in my blood glucose. Read More

I used 1/2 cup of the sugar free blueberry jelly (that stuff is yucky but I have to have some sweetness) and added some smashed raspberries and blackberries. My picky husband even liked his with some ice cream. Delish! Read More
