Soft, chewy, delicous and easy! I have left out the raisins while making these. Made these this evening and they were gone in 10 minutes!
These are VERY good! Easy to make and came out of the pan beautifully. Next time I may change the flour : oats ratio, as they came out a bit chewy. I pushed the jam all the way to the edges with no sticky ill effects. I was out of walnuts, so I substituted finely chopped blanched almonds, also with good result. I'm sure these will be just as good with any favorite jam; I want to try apricot, as I love that. UPDATE: I just made these again today, with a new twist. First, I did go with 1 cup each of oats and flour, with the flour being half whole wheat, and half all purpose. I'd say I like that ratio better. But the real change I tried today was to add about 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips on top of the raspberry jam. Nice! But I think I'd use a bit more chips next time. So, once again, this is a great recipe, and I'll definitely be making it again and again! Thanks, Hope!
