Fruit and Oat Bars


1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups low-fat oat bran muffin mix (1 box, I used FiberOne)
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup walnuts (or other favorite nuts) chopped
3 cups fresh berries of your choice
1/2-3/4 cup sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Microwave berries and sugar for two minutes, set aside to let cool.  Place butter, muffin mix, oats and nuts into a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Press half of the crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan firmly.  Spread the berries mixture over the top evenly.  Top with remaining crumb mixture and press until firm.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until top is lightly brown, making sure not to over bake.  Cool completely and cut into bars.  Delish!

Note:  This is a super quick and easy way to make fruit and oat bars, but I am sure there is a healthier, more complicated recipe if you're interested.
