DIRECTIONS

  • Directions, Oven at 350 degrees, have a baking pan ready.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together, add the oil and apple sauce and mix.
  • Separate about 2 cups of the mixture. Put the mixture into a pan or two - we used 1 14"x12" pan. You can grease the sides of the pan, but it isn't necessary on the bottom.
  • You want to pack the mixture down and have it be about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Spread on the preserves and then crumble the remaining dry mixture on the top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  • Let cool 10+ minutes and enjoy.
  • Oats & whole wheat are good for fiber, the soy adds some protein, and the apple sauce is a good partial substitute for oil/butter, keeping it pretty moist.
