Oatmeal Fruit Bars - A.MA.ZING!!!!!!

A very good friend, Lois, and I furnished refreshments for a women's church meeting not long ago.  

This is the dish Lois brought that WOWed a group of gals.  I was thrilled to get to take a few leftover bars home with me.  (Only because there were a lot more bars than women!)

I have to say these bars are OAT-RAGEOUSLY AWESOME!!!!!!!

For BESTEST results, use 1-1/2 cans of pie filling.  One will do, but it won't be as flavorful or moist.  Use your favorite fruit flavor.  
Lois used blueberry.

Using a cake mix makes the base easy and the process, simple. 

If I ever have a third cookbook, THIS recipe will be included!!
