Cranberry-Oatmeal Bars


Cake mix:
4 ½ ounces all-purpose flour (approximately 1 cup)
1 cup instant oatmeal
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons orange juice
Cooking Spray
1/2 cup dried cranberries (about 6 ounces)
¾ cup sour cream
½ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon grated orange zest
1 large egg white, lightly beaten

To make

This cranberry-oatmeal cookie has a nice flavor balance: not too sweet and not too tart. Be sure to peel the orange peel before squeezing the juice.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.To make the cake, spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup; flatten with a knife. Combine the flour and the following 5 ingredients (with the addition of cinnamon) in a medium bowl, mixing well with a whisk. Drizzle the flour mixture with the butter and juice, stirring until it is moistened (the mixture becomes crumbly). Leave in 1/2 cup of the oatmeal mixture. Place the remaining oatmeal mixture on the bottom of an 11-inch x 7-inch baking dish smeared with cooking spray.To make the filling, combine the cranberries, sour cream, granulated sugar, and other ingredients in a medium bowl, mixing well. Spread the cranberry mixture over the prepared cake; sprinkle the remaining oatmeal mixture evenly over the filling. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.Cherry and oatmeal bars: Instead of dried cranberries, substitute dried cherries, and instead of orange peel, use lemon zest in the filling.CALORIES 135 (31% of fat); FAT 6 g (sat 6 g, mono 8 g, poly 2 g); PROTEIN 7 g; CARBOHYDRATES 5 g; FIBER 3 g; CHOLESTEROL 13 mg; IRON 7 mg; SODIUM 68 mg; CALCIUM 27 mgMaple-date oatmeal bars: Replace dried cranberries with crushed pitted dates.
