breakfast bars turned fruit betty?

a new blog i started reading is the pioneer woman. once you make it through the sarcasm she is quite the blogger. one night i was in bed surfing on the blackberry about to sleep when i came across a recipe of hers for an apricot breakfast bar. she clearly states it may be a breakfast bar or it may be dessert. i got out of bed to make them. the recipe states to cool....but at midnight and 40 minutes of baking, i ate it warm. oh. my. god! we ate it the next few days warm with icecream. it was far too messy for a bar. i used strawberry jam....


...tonight i'm also using strawberry jam and some fresh blueberries.


begin by adding all ingredients into a mixing bowl. get excited when you believe the recipe is vegan......mix it together....


...and realize it did, indeed, call for almost 2 sticks of butter. i used margarine. is that vegan?

thats more like it.spread half the batter into a buttered dish.

grab about 10oz. of some jam that one of your dearest and oldest friend's gave to you. and spread it..... and if you're a lucky girl like me and have blueberry bushes outside, grab a handful of those and dump 'em in.

top with remaining batter....(or crumbs?) and bake @350 for 40 minutes.

stay tuned for recipe and finished pictures....
