  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour see my note in the post about measuring flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the all purpose flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs on at a time and then the vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients. Beat on low until integrated, then increase the speed until the dry ingredients are just combined.
  • Gently stir in the oats and dried cranberries.  Press the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.  Allow the bars to cool, then cut and enjoy.
