Yum... Made these with my homemade grape jelly! Doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan. Hubby said it could of used more jelly ~ I used a whole pint jar! But this is coming from an man that could eat the jelly out of the jar with a spoon :)

The only problem I had with these is that I didn't press the bottom crust firmly enough and they were quite crumbly. But scrumptious enough to pick up every little bit.

MY REVIEW

WIll be making these again, because I like the oats and jam together. However, I wish I had used brown sugar instead of white for more flavor. Also, next time I will keep 1.5 cups of the oat mixtutre and only use that for the topping- completely omitting the graham crackers. They made the bars much to messy.
