Homemade Nutri-Grain Bars

I have always wanted to make my own nutri-grain bars, I found an amazing recipe. Here ya go!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine; softened. I nuked it in the microwave for a few seconds
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup strawberry jam (you can use any kind you like)

Mix together all the try ingredients

 Add the butter and almond extract

mix together until a crumbly texture

spread half of the mixture on a greased baking sheet (I lined the pan with foil and greased it, worked like a charm)

spread the jam on top

 Use the remaining mixture to cover

bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. I baked mine for 23 minutes.

let cool and then cut into squares. I wrapped each square in saran wrap and will freeze them.


  1. I am going to try this recipe GF style, cannot wait :) Thanks Jen!

  2. Ohhhhhh. How many calories are in a serving? These look so good!

  3. mm looks delicious! going to try tonight! :)

  4. What a great idea! I just bought a few boxes of them for my daughter's lunches, but this would be so much better for her. Thank you!

  5. These look so YUM-O that I'm whipping them up for my Blissful Stitchers meeting on Friday! :)

  6. Will be adding these to my frugal recipe list :) My son and husband love these bars, but it gets expensive to buy. Thanks!!!
