Total time
Serves: 24
  • ½ cup room-temperature butter
  • ½ cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¾ cup fruit-only jam or preserves
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8" square pan, line it with aluminum foil and then butter the foil.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together except the jam.
  3. Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the jam to within ¼" of the edge. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over the top and lightly press it into the jam.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting.
For "pb&j" bars: spread ¾ cup peanut butter onto the oatmeal mixture, and then spread jam on top of the peanut butter. Finish by sprinkling the remaining crumb mixture and then bake as usual.
