Apple Pie Oatmeal Bars

One word: delicious! Jay found this recipe on one of his garden forums and adapted it to use his own jam.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
3/4 cup butter
2 cups Jay's Apple Pie Jam

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and quick cooking oatmeal in a medium bowl. Cut in 3/4 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Pat two-thirds into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
  4. Spoon apple pie jam evenly on top.
  5. Sprinkle the top with the remaining crumb mixture.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, or until crispy brown on top. Cool before cutting into bars.
