One of my favorite desserts and they're super easy to make!
Slightly adapted from allrecipes
1/3 C brown sugar
1 C all-purpose flour
1 C rolled oats
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
½ C unsalted butter, softened
½ - ¾ C jam
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 8x8 inch square pan (I didn’t have one on hand so used a 9 inch cake pan instead and it works just fine)
2. In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Then mix in softened butter with a fork until the mixture form
3. Take 2/3 of the dough, press it into the bottom of the pan, spread your favorite jam over it and make sure to leave at least ¼ inch around the edge.
If you get jam onto the pan, the bars will get stuck after it’s baked.
4. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top
bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edge is lightly browned. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
Sometimes, when you feel lonely and no one in the world seems to understand how you feel, go make yourself some Jammy Bars. You’ll feel better, I promise.
