    This is a delicious and easy recipe for cranberry bars or slices. They're festive in the holiday season and would make great gifts.

    Serves: 16 

    • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
    • 3/4 cup (185g) sugar
    • 2 tablespoons orange zest
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
    • 1 cup (155g) packed light brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup butter

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a small saucepan over medium high heat combine the cranberries, white sugar and orange zest. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook until the mixture has reduced to about 1 cup.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20x20cm baking pan, line with foil, then grease the foil.
    3. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter using your hands or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press half of this mixture firmly into the prepared pan. Spread the cranberry sauce evenly over the base then crumble the remaining oat mixture over the top.
    4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

    Awesome recipe so delicious and easy but add a bit of water to the cranberry mix because it clumps up into a ball and you can't smooth it out but besides that, it's great defiantly make this again - 04 Jul 2014
