Use your favorite jam (raspberry and apricot are nice). These are ready in a flash and folks with a well-developed sweet tooth love them!.
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup quick or old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons cold butter
- 1/2 cup jam of your choice
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Blend in oats and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter (or rub between fingertips) until mixture is crumbly.
Pat 2/3 of crumbly mixture into a 9x9” pan (for thicker bars, use an 8x8” pan). Spread with jam. Top with remaining crumbs and pat down lightly.
Bake at 375° for about 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut into bars when cool.
