- Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well and break up any clumps.
- Add beaten eggs and melted butter to the bowl. Mix well until the eggs and butter are soaked up by the mixture.
- Prepare a buttered 11 x 8.5 inch (2 quart) baking dish. Spread about 2/3 of the mixture along the bottom of the baking dish, pressing down flat. Then spread cranberry sauce as the middle layer. Lastly, spread the remaining 1/3 of the mixture as the top layer.
- Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into bars.
NOTES & TIPS
Having shared a delicious cranberry sauce recipe recently, I thought this post would be a great follow-up on how to use up leftover cranberry sauce. These cranberry sauce oatmeal bars taste exactly like how my ideal cranberry and oat dessert would taste: a little sweet but not too sweet (so that you can enjoy it for breakfast), very generous in the cranberry department, a bit crumbly, and a texture similar to homemade granola.
