Low-Point Cherry Oatmeal Bars

I've explained this before but apparently I wasn't listening so again, the rule is... if you eat the serving size, the dessert is fantastic and low-point. If you almost eat the entire dessert, you're doomed. I will do better next time. Promise! Very delicious but needs to come with a warning: Addicting!


Low-Point Cherry Oatmeal Bars
Ingredients:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 cup butter, Land O Lakes Light with canola oil, softened
- 1 1/2 cups canned cherry pie filling
Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and baking soda. Fold in butter until mixture is moist and crumbly. Press mixture into an 11 inch by 7 inch by 1 1/2 inch (or a similar size) baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, reserving 1/2 cup of the mixture. Spread cherry pie filling on crumb mixture in baking dish. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture here and there on top of the cherry pie filling and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (or until golden brown). Enjoy!
