1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg, beaten
zest of 1 orange or lemon
2 tablespoons orange or lemon juice
1 cup sifted or lifted flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (raisins, figs, dates, apricots, apples...)
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Add remaining ingredients and spread into a non-stick (or line pan with parchment paper) 9 by 9 inch baking pan. Bake 20 minutes, or until browned and crispy. Cool on a rack about 10 minutes before inverting onto a cutting surface. Cool and cut into pieces. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
