Peach Oatmeal Bars

Recipe 2015 TEMPLATE


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 2 cups frozen unsweetened sliced peaches
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350oF. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment.
  2. Place butter, oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and pecans in a medium bowl. Use fingers to blend ingredients until the butter is not visible. Reserve one-fourth of the mixture, about 1 cup, in a small bowl.
  3. Place remaining oatmeal mixture into the parchment lined pan. Use a metal measuring cup to press out an even layer.
  4. In the medium bowl combine peaches, 1 tablespoon sugar, cornstarch, ginger and cinnamon. Pour peach mixture onto the pressed crust in the pan. Crumble reserved oatmeal mixture over the peaches.
  5. Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Let cool at least 30 minutes in pan then, using the parchment to help, remove from pan and cut into bars.
