relish bars

Crunchy, fruity, buttery and chocolaty, relish these scrumptious bars with a cup of coffee or big glass of milk. You can use any kind of jam, or even cranberry relish, in the center. Oats and whole-wheat flour add fiber, and the nuts add heart-healthy unsaturated fats.

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened and cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups raspberry jam
1 package (12-ounce) white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350F. Coat a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flours, oats, salt and sugar. Add butter and combine until large crumbs form. Reserve one-third of crumb mixture.
