Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray bottom and sides of an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Pulse pecans in a food processor until coarsely chopped, 3 to 5 times. Add oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse 3 to 4 times.
  3. Sprinkle butter cubes over the top of the flour-oat mixture. Pulse until butter is the size of small peas, 3 to 5 times.
  4. Spread 1/2 of oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish, pressing down lightly. Spread apricot preserves over oat mixture to 1/4-inch of the edge. Top with remaining oat mixture and press down lightly.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool before cutting.

I have made this twice. My 94 year old dad complained the first time that the top was too crunchy, so when I made it the second time I added a little more melted butter to the remaining "crust" and then pressed it into the filling. It came out soft and my dad was very pleased.

I followed the recipe including the directions in the notes about how to without a food processor. I used homemade strawberry preserves because that's what I had on hand. The bars didn't really hold together and are very soft. I think I'll keep looking for a similar recipe that works out better. Thanks.
