Oatmeal Rasberry Bars

Let me share my little bowl of happy with you...


Yes, that's brown sugar and butter. I know. Stop it.

I can't take credit for this recipe. It's a Pioneer Woman recipe with a couple differences.

Here's what you need:
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c quick oats
2 sticks of butter{softened and cut into pieces}
1 c packed brown sugar
10 oz preserves {whatever kind you like}
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350
Mix everything except the preserves into a bowl. Takes a little while to get it all worked together.

Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Put 1/2 the mixture into the dish and firmly press down spreading the mix to cover the bottom of the dish.
Spread the preserves evenly over the top. Then add the remainder of the mixture and gently pat it down on top.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool and then cut into squares.

These are amazing! We took them for snacks to Disneyland and they kept everyone{even Hubby] happy.

You have to make them, they are so easy. You can thank me later! Or you can thank the Pioneer Woman. Whatever.

I made the strawberry ones PW made on her show. I actually bought all of the goods to make them with boysenberry jam for my bible study tomorrow. Delish. I am going to try your raspberry next time. Yum! :)

This looks so good but sadly, since I almost single handedly wiped out an extra large Bavarian cream filled king cake two days ago, I best not tempt myself with such yumminess by making this anytime soon.

Ok, you can't do this to me! I just bought a ton of raspberries with very noble intentions of putting them in protein smoothies... but now I want nothing less than oatmeal raspberry bars!!
