With an oat-filled crust and golden crumb topping, these apricot-filled bars are sweet and chewy. "Snackers can't resist my fruit treats," tells Dorothy Myrick of Kent, Washington.


  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) apricot spreadable fruit


  1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Add oil and apple juice; stir until moistened. Set aside 1/2 cup for topping.
  2. Press remaining oat mixture into an 11x7-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Spread the apricot fruit spread to within 1/4 in. of edges. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake at 325° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
