Craisins Breakfast Bars

I was looking up the juice I used in our smoothies this morning - the Ocean Spray Fruit & Veggie Tropical Citrus Blend - try it, it's amazing!  Anyway, while on the Ocean Spray web page, I saw this recipe, which I had to grab so I won't forget to make these.  They look amazing.


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup round toasted oat cereal
  • 2/3 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Blueberry or Pomegranate Juice Infused Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 325°F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with foil; spray foil with cooking spray.

Whisk together oil, orange juice, orange zest and egg in small bowl.

Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl; mix well. Pour in oil mixture; stir until all ingredients are moistened. Pour mixture evenly into prepared pan; press firmly. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until deep golden brown and set. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan by lifting foil; remove foil. Cut into bars while still warm. Serve warm or cool completely.

Makes 8 bars.

TIP: This mixture is a little sticky. To easily press into pan, spray bottom of metal measuring cup with cooking spray and press mixture with measuring cup.
