Apricot Apple Chip Bars

 


Ingredients
1 (2.5 oz.) bag of Cinnamon Apple Chips
3 (15.0 oz.) cans of Apricot Halves, drained
2-1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter, melted
Heat oven to 350oF. Lay apricots on a tray between paper towels and pat dry. Mix oats, flour, brown sugar, and baking soda in a large bowl; stir in butter until mixture is evenly blended. Reserve 1-1/4 cups oats mixture; press remaining mixture firmly on bottom of an ungreased 9x13-inch baking pan. Add apple chips to reserved oats mixture. Arrange apricots cut side down evenly over oats layer, to within 1/4-inch from edge of pan. Crumble apple chip mixture evenly over apricots and gently pat down. Apricots will not be completely covered. Bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown; cool and cut into bars.
