Substitute your favorite fruit preserves in place of the apricot.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 cups regular oats
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons chilled butter
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup apricot preserves
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, sugar, butter, and nutmeg in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Press two-thirds of oat mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Spread preserves over warm crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture, and press gently. Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
These are tasty, very easy and VERY crumbly. They're especially good warmed. I keep thinking something is missing, though. Maybe finely chopped nuts? Or vanilla? Or a little lemon rind? A TB of fruit liqueur? I used Smucker's Low Sugar apricot preserves, which worked well and keeps sugar and calories down a bit.
Very good, quick and easy. I did the recipe plus half again to make a 9x13 pan, which worked out fine. I didn't have apricot preserves, so I used a mix of raspberry and jalapeno jellies, which was delicious. This is a quick and easy recipe that's a little different than the usual.
