Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

These delicious cookie bars were my Valentine dessert.  They are so simple to make and so tasty, I decided to make another batch to share at work. I like making treats like this, they are not too sweet and the oats add nutritional value. They are also quite satisfying  for breakfast.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
(compliments allrecipes.com)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan, then line the pan with greased foil.

Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats.  Rub in the butter using your hands to form a crumbly mixture.  Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.  Spread the jam to within 1/4 inch of the edge.  Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top, and lightly press it into the jam.

Bake for 35 - 40 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Allow to cool before cutting into bars.

I am joining Lisa at her blog, Sweet as Sugar Cookies, for her 5th Sweets for a Saturday event.
