    Preserves Bars

    Recipe Description
    These bars are quick, easy, delicious and you are only limited to the types of preserves you can find.

    I've made different flavors so far, and every one a winner. Always a treat when tucked away in a lunchbox.

    Credit given where credit is due, I found the original apricot recipe on
    Preparation Steps:
    Preheat oven to 350*
    Level of Difficulty:
    Time Needed:
    15 prep / 35 cooking
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups oats
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 3/4 sticks (regular, salted) butter, cut into pieces
    1 10-12 ounce jar preserves
    depends on how big you cut your squares
    Mix all ingredients except preserves.

    Press one half of the mixture into a buttered 8″ square (or small rectangular) pan.

    Spread with a 10-12 ounce jar of preserves.

    Sprinkle second half of mixture over the top and pat lightly.

    Bake at 350 for 30 - 40 minutes or until light brown.

    Let cool completely, then cut into squares

    I have made this recipe with whole wheat flour. DH had a taste test with his colleagues . They thought it was similar to a nutigrain bar in taste. Some thought it tasted to healthy and didn't like it.

    My kids love it.

    I need to make some more.
