Strawberry Oatmeal Bars


Ingredients:

1 3/4 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Strawberry jam

Directions:

1.  Preheat the oven to 350F.

2.  Grease a 9" x 13" pan.

3.  In a bowl, use a pastry cutter to mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. 

4.  Press 1/2 of the crust mixture into the pan.  

5.  Add a layer of strawberry jam to this mixture.

6.  Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the top and pat lightly.  

7.  Bake until lightly browned, approximately 30 - 40 minutes.  Let cool completely, then cut into squares.  

Happy eating!
