Homemade Strawberry NutriGrain Bars

Homemade Strawberry NutriGrain Bars

Have you ever seen copy-cat recipes and wondered if they actually taste like the real thing? Well, I know I have… but until today, I’ve never attempted to make any of these recipes.

I sure am glad I tried making these homemade nutrigrain bars. They taste remarkably like the ones you can purchase at the grocery store.

I used reduced-sugar strawberry jam in my bars, but you can use any flavor you desire.


Homemade Strawberry NutriGrain Bars

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup butter, melted
12 ounces preserves or jam
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix and oats. Stir in melted butter until the mixture is crumbly.

Measure half of the mixture (approx. 3 cups) into prepared pan. Press firmly into pan to cover bottom.

Combine preserves/jam and water. Spoon over crumb mixture in pan; spread evenly.

Cover jam with remaining crumb mixture. Pat firmly to make top even.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until top is very light brown.

Cool completely before cutting into bars.
