Oatmeal Berry Bars
  Re: (...)
I made these bars today and they were soooo good. I made them with raspberries, but it says blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches or plums are all good. I don't think I would really serve them for breakfast - a good afternoon snack or with a scoop of vanilla icecream - YUM!

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Crust and Topping:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar -- firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter -- cold and cut into small cubes
2 1/2 cups quick-cook oats
2 tablespoons apple or orange juice
1/4 cup dark brown sugar -- firmly packed
2 tablespoons flour
1 Pinch salt
3 1/2 cups fresh blueberries -- (18 ounces) raspberries, or blackberries
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Heat the oven to 375°. Grease a 9- by 13-inch pan.

Step 2

Add the flour, light brown sugar, and salt to the bowl of a food
processor. Pulse once or twice to combine, then add the butter and pulse
five or six more times until coarse crumbs form. Add the oats and pulse
two or three more times.

Step 3

Remove 1 1/2 cups of the mixture and set it aside. Add the juice to the
remaining mixture and pulse three or four times until it's just moistened.
Press this mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom of the pan using your
fingers or the bottom of a measuring cup.

Step 4

For the filling, whisk together the sugar, flour, and salt in a
medium-size bowl. Add the fruit and lemon juice and gently toss the
mixture using a rubber spatula until the fruit is coated. Distribute the
filling over the crust.

Step 5

Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture over the filling. Bake the dish until
the top is golden, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let the pan cool on a wire rack
for about 2 hours, then cut the sheet into 16 bars. Store them in the
refrigerator in an airtight container.

NOTES : This hearty bar is easily handheld for breakfast on the
go. We used berries in our version, but it's equally tasty
with peeled and chopped peaches, nectarines, or plums.

Those look like they would be very good. Can they be made with dried fruit? I recently had some of TJ's oatmeal cherry cookies for the first time and I am now addicted. I would love to recreate them at home.
