Berry Oat Bars

This is another recipe I've had for so long, I don't even know where I found the recipe. It makes me feel a little better because it uses rolled oats and berries... So it almost cancels out the scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream you add on top!

1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup raspberry jam, warmed
2 cups berries (blueberries, blackberries or raspberries- fresh, frozen or a combination of both)

Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the oats, flour, sugar and salt. Stir in the butter until well-blended.

Press 1 and 1/2 cups of the oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Carefully pour jam over the crust (don't worry if its not perfect) and sprinkle with berries. Top with remaining oat mixture.

Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cut into bars and serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Serves 9.
