Oatmeal Fruit Bars

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 t. salt
¼ t. baking soda
2 T. Splenda
3 T. brown sugar + 1 T.
dash of cinnamon
1 t. vanilla extract
½ t. grated ginger
2 T. margarine
½ c. vegetable oil (i used 3:1 applesauce:canola oil)
¼ c. dried berries (I used dried cherries)
¼ c. jam (I used fruits of the forest 365 brand)
¼ c. pureed berries (I used frozen mixed berries - blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or something)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except for jam, dried berries, 1 T. brown sugar and pureed berries. Press half of mixture into bottom of a greased 8 inch square pan. I then topped this with some peanut butter to make it like a peanut butter and jelly bar thing. Spread jam and pureed berries on crust. Top with dried berries. Sprinkle with remaining half of crumb mixture and lightly press down. (my crumb topping wasn't really was more like paste...i'm not sure what i did wrong , but it still tasted good)Sprinkle with last tablespoon of brown sugar and bake for 35 minutes and allow to cool before cutting into squares.
