I did a half batch of these and these are so yummy, now I can'tr stop eating. A great way to use up a stock pile of jam..I used raspberry this time but can't wait to try it with other flavours..I used half brown sugar half raw sugar as I was running low on brown and all worked fine...Thanks for posting!

DH and I made this after we found ourselves with an abundance of jam (apparently Christmas is the season of jam-giving). DH liked it a lot, but I thought the oat mixture was a little dry; I think I might add a little more butter next time. Thanks for the recipe!!
