Strawberry Jam'n Bars

It has fruit in's GOT to be healthy, right?! That's what we tell ourselves as we dive into these scrumptious bars. Now, as I look at this picture of them, above, I have admit, they don't look all that "scrumptious"; my camera doesn't do them justice. It's a good thing I know what they really taste like!!! Otherwise I'd be missing out!

Strawberry Jam'n Bars

  • 1-1/3 cups margarine
  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2-1/4 cups quick oatmeal
  • 8 ozs. fruit jam (any flavor can be used, we like strawberry best)
  • vanilla frosting for drizzle

Mix first 6 ingredients together well. Pat 2/3 of the mixture into bottom of 9x13 pan. Spread jam on top evenly, which I heat slightly in the microwave to make it easier to spread. Take remaining oatmeal mixture and crumble on top of the jam. Bake at 350 till just slightly browned on top and bubbly around edges. Let cool completely. Drizzle with vanilla frosting. Easiest way to do this (I have found) is to put the frosting in a ziploc bag, heat in microwave for about 10-15 seconds, snip corner of bag and drizzle!

And remember as you slice and partake; these are healthy, right?!!
