Mmm… Monday #17: Jam Oatmeal Bars

A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

I have no idea why I generally only make these cookies around Christmas time. I think I’m going to have to make these more often. Every year, I forget how incredibly awesome they are. Until I bite into one. Mmm.

I just want to gobble this up.

Now, I make these with my homemade raspberry jam, but any type of jam will work. However, I will have to admit that the homemade raspberry is the best jam in the world! Yeah, I’m a bit biased.

These are quite easy to make.

Jam Oatmeal Bars

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cups butter/margarine
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup thick jam

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Press 2/3 of mixture into 11″x7″ glass baking dish.
  5. Spread jam and top with remaining crumbs.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Cool and cut into bars.

I hope you enjoy them!
