Berry Oat Bars Recipe

“I found this quick dessert in a cookbook for children,” writes Faye Mayberry of St. David, Arizona. “I lightened it and increased the amount of oats for more fiber. My family couldn’t even tell that I had changed the recipe!”

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 11, 2011

"This stuff is really good," said my husband after his 2nd serving of the day. I had to substitute orange marmalade for half of the raspberry preserves, and I think it brought another flavor to the party. We microwave each serving for about 15 seconds for a eat-with-a-spoon yummy treat.
