Total Time35 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 24 servings


  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter cold
  • 1 14 oz can whole cranberry sauce or 1 ½ cups homemade cranberry sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl, mix together oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Use your fingers to rub in the butter until everything is moistened and no pieces are bigger than the oats.
  • Spoon three-quarters of the oat mixture into a greased 9” x 13” pan. Press down on it firmly to form a firm later that evenly covers the bottom of the pan. Add the cranberry sauce in dollops and spread it in a thin layer over the oat layers. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top.
  • Bake for 25-28 minutes or until the top is just starting to turn golden brown. Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 8 strips along the length of the pan and 3 strips along the width – yielding 24 bars.
