Easy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

I was looking for something easy to make and that kids also might enjoy.
I came across this recipe I’ve have stashed in my “would love to make one day” binder. I have no idea where it came from but it sounded good…and I had all the ingredients on hand.

1 3/4 Sticks Butter, cut into pieces1 1/2 cup Flour
1 1/2 cup Oats
1 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
10 to 120z Strawberry Preserves*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9 x 13″ pan with non-stick spray.

Mix together butter and all dry ingredients. Press half of mix into the pan. Spread with the strawberry preserves. Sprinkle the other half of mix over the top and pat lightly.
Bake until light brown, about 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, and then cut into squares.

*I didn’t have enough strawberry jam so I made half strawberry and the other half blackberry πŸ™‚
