These bars are so incredibly delicious (and simple)! Whenever I make them, the whole tray usually disappears within a day. You wouldn’t expect them to be so addicting — but at least you’ve been warned!
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 sticks butter
Jar of apricot jam (I buy apricot/pineapple)
Mix dry ingredients together, then add melted butter and mix with hands. Spread about a 1/2” thick layer into a 13” x 9” pan — you won’t be using all of the mix just yet. Then spread a thin layer of jam (about a cup) over the base. I melt mine down for a bit to make it spread easier. And don’t worry if you don’t perfectly cover every inch, it will melt in the oven and spread on its own. Lastly, top it off with the remaining mix.
Bake for around 30-35 minutes at 350º. Enjoy!
