Bezerka Bars

Great Harvest Bread does a version of these called Mazurka Bars. But of course they don't give out their recipe so the search was on. I tried a few recipes before essentially making up my own. We love this recipe! Mazurka actually means "Polish wedding cake" or something like that but my BFF Abby called these Bezerka Bars because that is what she thought they were called, and it really does fit, they are so good they will drive you bezerk. So love you Abby! This one is for you!

Bezerka Bars

2 cups oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans are the best
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 sticks of butter, melted
1 t vanilla
fresh fruit*

*My favorite is fresh peaches and raspberries but just about anything works, be creative!

Mix all the ingredients, except fruit, together and press into a greased 9x13 pan. Put fresh fruit on top and press lightly into crumb mixture. Bake at 325 for 40-50 minutes, until they look dry on top and lightly brown on the edges. These are good warm, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but tend to fall apart easy. To set, let them cool completely. We love these as breakfast bars too.
