Cranberry Bog Bars

These were good but you could probably save a lot of calories by using sugar free preserves instead of the cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Bog Bars
2 TB light margarine
4 oz unsweetened applesauce (sweetened with Splenda)
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
2/3 c. Splenda
3 1/2 c. old fashioned oats, divided
1/2 c. flour
16 oz whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 TB Splenda

Preheat oven to 375*. Spray 13×9 pan with cooking spray; set aside. In medium bowl, combine margarine, applesauce, brown sugar, and Splenda.  Add 3 cups of oats and flour. Press into prepared pan.  Spread cranberry sauce evenly over oat mixture. Top with remaining 1/2 cup of oats and sprinkle with 2 TB Splenda. Bake 25-30 minutes. Let cool and cut into bars.
