About this recipe: A great little snack that everyone will enjoy. An oaty base is topped with sweetened cranberries and an oat crumble, before being baked to perfection.
Enjoyed this but found the amount of filling too little for a 23x23 cm baking tin. The amount of crumble definitely fits this size pan. Would use just enough crumble for a 20x20 tin and save the leftover for another baking, or double the amount of filling. - 12 Jan 2017
These are lovely and easy to make and taste fab, I used cranberry sauce from a jar and just sweetened it with a bit of sugar and added some juice from the orange. But like the recipe says please wait until it is cold to turn out to cut into slices. Very happy with this recipe. - 10 Feb 2015
I have made this recipe twice. First I made it with the changes suggested by some readers: 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, 3 cups cranberries, 1 cup sugar and a 9 X 13 pan. But the applesauce diluted the intense cranberry flavor, and the crust wasn't substantial enough (the bars were too flimsy). So the second time, I used the following ingredients, also in a 9 X 13 pan: 4 cups cranberries 1 1/3 cups white sugar 3 tablespoons orange zest 2 cups rolled oats 1 1/2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 sticks butter I baked it for about 35 minutes at 370 degrees. The cranberry filling had the intense flavor I wanted, and the crust was substantial, making for a firm bar. - 01 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
