Whole Wheat Apricot Jam Granola Bars

We have had this conversation to some extent before, but I feel like I have never really confessed just how deeply my love for all things oat related in quite so much detail. So hey – I mean as long as we’re being really honest here – I guess I should tell you that I actually have no problem eating raw oats on their own. Yup, that’s right – believe it or not, I actually find raw oats to be incredibly delicious and sometimes I eat them with a spoon straight from my oatmeal jar .

However, it does work on the stovetop, with a slight adjustment of the amount of liquids, and I can't think of any reason for it not to work in a more sophisticated crockpot. I have sugges…
