1.Made with Rogers Foods Porridge Oats & Healthy Grains, fresh apricots and dried cranberries, these delicious squares are perfect for the final days of summer and the start of the school year.

The squares can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or in freezer for up to 3 months.
2.Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease or line a 9″ x 9″ (2 L) cake pan with parchment paper.
3.In a medium saucepan add apricots, cranberries, water, orange rind and juice. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until fruit is soft – fork tender. Set aside saucepan to cool completely about 15 minutes.
