    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Coat an 8"X 8" baking pan with cooking spray.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and vanilla and stir to mix well.
    4. 4
      Add the margarine and cut it quickly into dry ingredients with two knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal and is no longer powdery. Do no overmix--bits of margarine will still be visible.
    5. 5
      Set aside about half the oat mixture; press the rest firmly into the pan. Bake until lightly browned at the edges (but not fully baked), 13 to 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, mix the preserves with the spinach puree in a small bowl.
    7. 7
      Spread blueberry mixture over the partially baked oat layer, then sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake until topping is slightly browned, 20-25 minutes. Set the pan on a rack to cool completely before cutting into 12 bars.
    8. 8
      Spinach Puree:.
    9. 9
      Steam baby spinach(for mature spinach-remove stems) for about 30-40 seconds or cook in skillet with 1 tablespoons water for about 90 seconds or just until wilted. Puree in food processor or blender for about 2 min until smooth and creamy.

      This is the 2nd time I've made these. It's true that you can't detect the spinach, which is nice. My children just aren't a big fan of these. After the first bite, my kids don't want to eat any more and I end up eating them all myself simply because I don't want to waste the ingredients. The first time I made them, I brought them to the park and no one would touch them after they heard they had spinach in them. I did use a larger pan (9"x11") the second time I made these and thought that was a much better pan size.

      These are EXCELLENT!! I made them trying to give my kids a healthier breakfast them box cereal. They loved them and never guessed that there was spinach in them. I followed the recipe exactly but next time I think that I will use a little less sugar and make it in a larger pan for thinner bars. Thanks for sharing!

      I have made these a couple of times now and they are excellent! I used 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour in place of some of the white flour and did not notice any difference in taste or texture. We like ours a little thinner, so I also used a slightly larger pan than the 8"x8" and reduced the cooking time slightly. Many thanks for posting!
