- Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over the sides just a little.
- Melt the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the brown sugar and corn syrup until evenly blended. Pour this mixture over the oats and stir to blend.
- Press half of this oat mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the dried fruits evenly over the oat base, then top with the remaining oat mixture, pressing gently (it’s alright if the fruit peeks through the top layer here and there).
- Bake the squares for about 20 minutes until they are an even golden brown color. Cool the pan completely before pulling the square as a whole out using the parchment paper and then slicing.
The squares will keep in an airtight container for up to four days.
