My new oatmeal (Nutrigrain) bars

If you have ever paid attention to a nutrigrain bar box, you would realize they are FULL of junk, lots of sugar, colorings, ingredients you can't pronounce etc. I decided to make my own with good success (to me). Here's the recipe, hope you enjoy. Let me know if you have any questions or comments on how it is.... 1/2 container of Earth Balance Coconut Butter (if you cut container into 4s, use 2 parts) 2 cups of oatmeal 1 cup flour 1/2 cup of water Mix all ingredients in mixer and press into 8x8 pan Put apricot jam (or whatever flavor you like) over it and spread around until the oatmeal mixture is covered. Then mix 1 piece of the 4s of the Coconut Butter, 1 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of flour in mixer with about 1/4-1/2 cup of water (you don't want oatmeal out of it), once that is mixed spread over the jam (be careful not to spread to hard) Bake at 350 until clean knife comes out (about 10-15 minutes); let cool then enjoy!
