Raspberry Oat Bars

Here's the recipe for this low calorie snack!

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup soy-protein cereal clusters (I used Kashi's Go Lean Crunch)
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
5 tbsp margarine, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup raspberry fruit spread

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine oats, flour, cereal, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in food processor; process until blended.  Add margarine; process with on/off pulses just until coarse crumbs form.  Set aside 1/2 cup crumbs for topping.  Press remaining crumbs onto bottom of prepared pan.
3. Bake 15 minutes.  Spread fruit over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbs.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are browned and fruit spread is firm.  Cook slightly in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars.  Makes 20 bars.

My only complaint is how small the serving size is - you really need to save calories for 2 servings to make it feel worthwhile.
