      Hi Jane,

      Yes, you can definitely use whole wheat flour. As for honey, you could use less, but these are not very sweet as is. With less honey, they might be not sweet enough for you to enjoy them. You could also use brown sugar, maple syrup or coconut sugar.

    Your cranberry oatmeal bars and the cranberry table decor ideas look so good. We love Ocean Spray cranberries. Thanks for sharing your post with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    My stomach is rumbling and all I feel are warm fuzzies looking at this recipe. These bars look absolutely phenomenal- perfect for all the holiday parties!

      I agree, perfect for holiday parties or when you’re hosting guests. They’d love them too! They freeze well, so a great make-ahead recipe.

    We love oatmeal bars around our house, too! In fact, our toddler eats oatmeal bars for breakfast every morning. I’ll definitely try making him a batch of these cranberry oatmeal bars…they sound delicious! And I love the idea of filling votives with cranberries for the Thanksgiving table. Thanks for sharing! #client
