  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray a 13x9-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place oats, flour, walnuts, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk to blend.
  • Melt butter in a large microwave-safe bowl then whisk in peanut butter and brown sugar until well-blended.
  • Whisk in egg and vanilla then stir in dry ingredients using a large spatula.
  • Spread half the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan then spread the fruit spread evenly over the oat base.
  • Top with an even layer of remaining oat batter.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until just beginning to turn golden.
  • A toothpick inserted will come out with a few moist crumbs clinging, and the sides will begin to separate from the pan.
  • Cool completely on a rack before cutting into 24 pieces.
  • Store at room temperature for up to four days.
