or just plain WOW!  
Delicious Recipes in Review!
Tune in every Wednesday as I review/post a  great recipe . 



  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 375.

  2. 2
    Coat an 8"X 8" baking pan with cooking spray.

  3. 3
    In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and vanilla and stir to mix well.

  4. 4
    Add the margarine and cut it quickly into dry ingredients with two knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal and is no longer powdery. Do no overmix--bits of margarine will still be visible.

  5. 5
    Set aside about half the oat mixture; press the rest firmly into the pan. Bake until lightly browned at the edges (but not fully baked), 13 to 15 minutes.

  6. 6
    Meanwhile, mix the preserves with the spinach puree in a small bowl.

  7. 7
    Spread blueberry mixture over the partially baked oat layer, then sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake until topping is slightly browned, 20-25 minutes. Set the pan on a rack to cool completely before cutting into 12 bars.

  8. 8
    Spinach Puree:.

  9. 9
    Steam baby spinach(for mature spinach-remove stems) for about 30-40 seconds or cook in skillet with 1 tablespoons water for about 90 seconds or just until wilted. Puree in food processor or blender for about 2 min until smooth and creamy.
