Oatmeal jam bars

These oatmeal bar cookies are the stuff you've been dreaming about. They are crispy while chewy, sweet while salty, and, yes, fruity. One great way to get your kids excited for school is by preparing them a nutritious breakfast with oats that will fuel their brains and keep them energized.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups salted butter
  • 1 yolk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups jam

The technique for a tasty breakfast

Step 1: Gather the ingredients. Set the oven temperature to 350 F.

Step 2: Coat a pan with butter or cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, and sugar until they are fully combined.

Step 3: Rub the butter into the flour mixture until it is crumbly and pea-sized using your fingers, cube the cold butter. Instead, you may employ a pastry blender or two butter knives.

Step 4: Using a fork, mix the egg yolk and vanilla into the mixture. If you're comfortable with it, switch to your fingers and continue mixing until the yolk and vanilla are completely mixed in and the dough stays together when you press a bit between your fingers.

Step 5: Place 2 2/3 cups of dough in the refrigerator in a medium mixing bowl. Firmly press the remaining dough into the prepared pan.

Step 6: Spread the jam evenly over the bottom crust.

Step 7: For the ultimate topping, if you wish, use the refrigerated dough to cover the jam and roll it into little balls between your fingers.

Step 8: Rotate the pan halfway through baking to brown the oat crumb topping lightly. Bake for 45 minutes.

Step 9: Before slicing and serving, let it cool to room temperature.

Tip: Before spreading the jam, bake the bottom crust for a few minutes.
