Raspberry Granola Bars
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup shredded coconut
2/3 cup finely ground walnuts
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 apple (any variety) cored and grated
1 cup (10-ouce jar) raspberry preserves or spreadable fruit
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Brush a 9x13 inch baking pan with melted butter and dust lightly with flour or spray generously with cooking spray.
Mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, coconut and walnuts in a large bowl. Using your fingers work in the butter until it resembles a coarse meal, being careful not to overmix it into a dough. (or you can use a food processor. Pulse 4 or 5 times) Pat a little more than half of this mixture (about 3 cups) into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until the crust just begins to turn brown. Cool.
Stir the grated apple into the preserves. Spread onto the pre-baked crust. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining flour and nut mixture. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until the top crust is a light golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.
Makes 12 (3 inch square) or 24 (2 inch square) bar cookie.
