Yields1 Serving
Ingredients
 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
 1 cup granulated sugar
 1 tbsp orange juice
 1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
 1 cup oats
 1 tsp cinnamon
 1 cup packed brown sugar
 1 tsp baking powder
 ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
 ½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
Directions
1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x9-inch pan.

2

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring cranberries, 1 cup sugar, and orange juice just to a boil. Cook until sugar dissolves and cranberries begin to pop open, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

3

In a large bowl, mix together flour, oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, and baking powder until well combined. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts.

4

Press half the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread cranberry mixture carefully over crust. Sprinkle remaining flour mixture over cranberry layer and lightly press to cover cranberries.

5

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Cool completely before slicing into bars.
