Rhubarb Oatmeal Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lezlie

A delicious rhubarb bar, great for the first rhubarb of the season, or to use up the last. I have found that cooking the rhubarb in half water half fruit juice (I've used orange or pineapple) enhances the flavour nicely.

Really outstanding, easy, and delicious. (I used about 4 cups of rhubarb because that's what I had, and it worked great.) Be sure to let it cool completely before cutting into bars; otherwise it slumps onto your plate. When cool it has the structural integrity of a regular cookie.
