Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the paddle attachment to cut in the cubed butter, mixing on low until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the rolled oats and mix JUST until the oats are combined.
  4. Measure out 1 ½ cups of this mixture and set it aside.
  5. Grease a 8”x8” glass baking dish and press the mixture into the bottom of the pan, pressing down firmly to form a crust.
  6. Bake for 5 min.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven and spread the jam evenly over the crust layer.
  8. Sprinkle the reserved mixture evenly over the jam and press down lightly.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  10. Let the bars cool completely on a wire rack before cutting, at least 2 hours. Bars hold their shape exceptionally well if they’re refrigerated.

Notes

*Honey and maple syrup will alter the wet/dry ratio in this recipe, so we need to use granular sugar.
