CRUNCHY, CHEWY and MOIST. That sums up this pleasing amber-color bar cookie. The bottom crust gets extra crunch from bran cereal, while the top layer combines apricots and walnuts. This one-bowl recipe will be quick on cleanup, and that will give you more time to savor this unusual treat.

  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, snipped or cut in fourths
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3/4 cup whole bran cereal (I used All Bran)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar (I used Splenda Blend which is half brown sugar and half Splenda ~ it was perfectly sweet to me.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Combine apricots and water in small saucepan. Simmer covered 10 minutes; drain and cool.
  2. Set oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9" x 9" baking pan with vegetable spray, or grease it lightly; set aside.
  3. In medium size mixing bowl beat together butter and granulated sugar until soft and fluffy. Stir in ½ cup of the flour and the bran cereal. Press mixture over bottom of prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, using same mixing bowl and beaters, beat eggs until thick and lemon-colored. Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Add remaining ½ cup of flour, baking powder and salt, mixing just to blend. Fold in apricots and walnuts gently.
  5. Pour over baked bran layer, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool thoroughly and cut into 16 squares. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar when serving (optional.)
