Whole Grain Fruit Bars

Whole Grain Fruit Bars
Source:  Two Peas & Their Pod

The kids have been loving nutri grain bars.  I've searched for a version I can make at home.  More control over ingredients.  These were super easy to make and yummy.  Now to make my own wrapper because that confuses the kids a bit!

1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter
2 TBSP cold water
3/4 cup fruit preserves (I used Trader Joe's Strawberry)

Preheat oven to 350.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt.  Pulse 30 seconds.

Add butter and cold water.  Pulse until dough holds together.

Grease 9X13 pan, line with parchment.
Divide the dough in 1/2 & press into the prepared baking dish.
Press evenly.
Spread preserves on top of the dough.
Top with remaining dough.

Bake 45 minutes.
Cool, cut in 1 1/2 X 4 in. pieces.
