If you’re going to make jam bars with store-bought jam, it has to be Polaner’s.
There are rules in life, and some just aren’t worth breaking.
1 cup oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, heated 10 seconds in the microwave
10 oz jar Polaner Raspberry Spreadable Fruit
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine dry ingredients.
Work the butter into the dry ingredients. You’re shooting for a crumbly mixture, with no big chunks of butter. Little clumps are ok.
Press 2 cups of the mixture into a square baking pan.
Spread jam on top. This is a bit tricky, but don’t shoot for perfection. As long as there’s a bit of jam in each section, it’ll work out ok.
Sprinkle the remaining mixture on top, and press it down lightly with your fingers.
Bake for 35 minutes, until lightly browned.
Let cool and cut into squares, then wrap each individually for an on-the-go snack.
