Strawberry Oatmeal Bars


1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup instant oatmeal (for this one all I had was maple & it tasted great)
1/2 cup butter softened (don’t melt, I just whip with a fork a little)
3/4 cup strawberry preserves (I love Safeway/ Vons brand both good and inexpensive)

Preheat oven at 350degrees
Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and oatmeal. Add butter and mix with your hands until crumbly. Pat about 3/4 of the mixture into the bottom of an 8×8 inch pan. Now take your jam and heat it in the microwave, just enough for easy spreading. Spread your jam over the layer of crumb mixture. Next sprinkle the remaining crumble over the jams and lightly pat down. Cook for 30 mins.

This was so yummy It was like eating a chewy oatmeal cookie with a gooey center. Try using different flavored jams. I tried it ala mode last night and it was DIElicious!!!!
