3 cups 750 mL quick oats
3 cups 750 mL whole wheat flour
1 1/3 cups 315 mL brown sugar
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1 cup 250 mL butter
3/4 cup 175 mL water
4 cups 1000 mLgrape filling


  1. Mix dry ingrediants together in a large bowl.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave.
  3. Mix the melted butter and water into the dry ingrediants. You will probably have to use your hands. If it is too dry, add a bit more water.
  4. Press 2/3 to 3/4 of the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  5. Pour the grape filling into the pan. Spread it around evenly.
  6. Drop the remainder of the crust onto the filling in peices no larger than a quarter. You can't really spread them once they are on because they are to stiff and the filling is too squisy. When you are down to small pieces and loose oats, just sprinkle them on.
  7. Bake at 350F (175C) for about 30 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool and cut into squares. If you have big chunks of crust on top, you may have to cut around them.
