Jam-filled oatmeal squares are a delicious, healthy alternative to the store-bought granola bars and very simple to make in one bowl.
Recipe type: dessert
Cuisine: snack
Serves: 16
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Oatmeal (I used rolled oats)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Jam
  • ¾ cup butter at room temperature
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  1. Blend flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt and butter well.
  2. Mix until it resembles bread crumbs
  3. Spread half the mixture into a greased 9x9 baking dish and press down using the back of a tablespoon.
  4. Add one tablespoon of cornstarch to jam and mix well. This will ensure that the jam stays between the mixture.
  5. Sprinkle remaining mixture on top of jam and lightly pat down.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25-30mins or until they are light tan in colour.
  7. Before cooling cut into bars, they will firm as they cool.
