- Mix all of the above ingredients except the jam into a crumbled texture.
- Divide in two portions. Pat half into an 8 x 8 pan.
- Top with your choice of jam or jelly.
- Crumble the remaining dough over jam evenly.
- Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes until light brown.
- Cool completely and cut into squares.
This was very nice and a good recipe for tweaking. I added half brown and half white sugar as I didn't have enough brown sugar. I also added a tablespoon of flaxseeds to make them more healthy and a mixture of jams which I had leftover in the fridge including some chunky homemade fig jam. It worked beautifully and was really yummy. This really needs to cool down in the pan before slicing to prevent it crumbling. I didn't dare try when it was still warm but waited until it had cooled down completely. I also greased the pan with butter before patting down the mixture which may have helped it come out so easily. All in all, an easy tasty recipe, thanks for posting.
These are so good. Just made them with old fashioned oats and organic raspberry jam. Way better than any packaged cereal bar I have ever had.
