Cranberry Bars

These are amazing for dessert or breakfast! The tartness of the cranberries combined with the crunch of the nuts and the sweetness of the chocolate are perfect for a holiday treat, especially if you can find cranberries super cheap after Thanksgiving. They're just as good the second day too, so you can make them ahead of time for breakfast or brunch.

Cranberry Bars

2 eggs
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c whole wheat flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
dash salt
1 1/2 c fresh cranberries
1/2 c chopped nuts
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a square baking pan.  Beat eggs until thick. Gradually add sugars, beating well. Stir in flour, melted butter, vanilla and salt; blend well. Add cranberries, nuts and chocolate chips mixing gently just until combined. Spread into greased pan.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool and cut into bars.
