Rhubarb Oatmeal Bars
For crust, combine ½ cup chopped pecans, 1½ cups rolled oats, 1 cup brown sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt, 1½ cups flour, 1 cup softened butter and ¼ teaspoon baking soda; mix until crumbly. Pat half of the mixture into a 9- by 13-inch pan.
For filling, in a medium saucepan combine 4 cups chopped rhubarb, 1¼ cups sugar, 2 tablespoons cornstarch and ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until mixture is clear. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Pour filling over crust. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool before slicing into serving-sized bars.
