Made these last night & they turned out great! I used old fashioned rolled oats instead of quick cooking oats and for the jam I used seedless blackberry (sugar free sweetened with Splenda). When they 1st came out of the oven according to the time (30 minutes) they were a little soft still & they almost started to slide to one side of the pan. I put them back in for another 5 minutes, though & that was just enough time for them to set up properly.I'm going to try again later this week with some plum preserves I made last season. Can't wait & neither can my husband!
These were delicious and easy to make. They were a little crumbly when eating.
These squares were a hit with the whole family. Our two year old called them treats! I used the half sugar strawberry jam I had on hand and thought it worked great. I think we will try the raspberry next time and the pumpkin idea sounds great too. These were very easy to make. Love that it used melted butter rather than having to fuss with cutting it in like many similar recipes suggest. A little on the sweet side, but that works well for us.
I used blackberry jam which I couldn't really taste once baked. I'd use raspberry like the recipe suggests. They taste like a granola bar. My son loved them, my husband didn't care for them and I thought they were pretty good.
These are very easy to make and very yummy! I love that you can change the kind of jam to make them different each time or go with a theme...both taste or color.
