Berry Oat Bars
A delicious and simple morning treat!
or gluten free substitute
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except for preserves.
Using your hands press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of your pan until it's even and relatively flat.
Gently spread preserves, leaving 1/2" around the outside. (The preserves will scald if up against the edge of the pan.)
Using your hands, evenly crumble the remaining 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the preserves and lightly press so the crumbles stay in place after baking.
Bake for 25-30 minutes on a center rack until lightly browned on top.
Let cool in pan on top of a cooling rack. Cut and serve!
I love to make a batch of these at the beginning of the week and the kids and I grab a bar when we need a quick breakfast or snack. YUM!
