tastes even better then it looks

I adapted this recipe from

Jam Oatmeal Bars

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 cup flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt ( i used salted butter and skipped the salt)

1 cup rolled oats ( i used instant oats)

1 stick butter

3/4 cup jam ( I used strawberry preserve)

1. mix together flour, sugar, oats, baking soda, salt. Cut in butter (i did this in a food processor)

2. Pat 2 cups of the mixture into a 8×8 baking pan. Spread jam leaving 1/2 inch border. Crumble the rest of the oat mixture on top, and press into jam gently

3. bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes. Cool before cutting (or eat with a spoon like i did cuz i was too impatient to wait for it to cool)jam bar1
