packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups
fruit preserves, any flavor
I have made this recipe twice in one weekend. It is very good. Here are some tips. Use the 9 X 13 pan but you will need to reserve only about 3/4 C of crumb mixture- otherwise there won't be enough to pack into the pan. I reserved all of the walnuts for the topping. I added 1 TSP of Vanilla and subbed nutmeg for cinnamon. Oh one more thing... I used half a jar of jam for each batch.
This came out WAY to crumbly and would not stay in squares. I basically served it like it was a cobbler or a crisp. The taste is ok but not the greatest, will not make again.
These are a delicious healthy snack..... I used all applesauce in place of the butter. It makes a soft bottom crust, then i mixed 1 - 1 1/2 cups more oats into the remainder of the mix, to make it more crumbly for the top.
I used rasperry jam.
They're just the right amount of sweet.
We really like these. We were looking for a healthy treat, though, so I substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup of the butter. It added a really good flavor, reduced the fat, and I think helped the improve the crumbly factor other reviewers have mentioned--they stuck together just fine. However, one reviewer said she left out the sugar entirely and put tons of jam so I tried to just put half the sugar and tons of jam. It was okay but next time I'm just gonna put the sugar. Half the sugar = breakfast snack (not a problem), but all the sugar = treat (yum!).
Yum! A little on the sweet side so it may benefit from a little less sugar and I found that I needed a whole cup of preserves rather than 3/4 cup. On the whole a very tasty recipe!
YUM YUM!!! So quick and easy to make too! Great for a brunch or snack.
I tried this recipe for the first time last weekend. I used a jar of homemade peach jam (given to us by my husband's grandma). I don't know why but as I was making it - I just didn't have high expectations. I figured most of it would go to waste since my husband isn't a big oatmeal fan. I was pleasantly surprised! My husband and I both LOVED it. After he took his first bite - he asked me to make it again - so we wouldn't run out. His only complaint is that we didn't have any vanilla ice cream to go with it. (He stopped at the store the very next day to get some). We've been reheating the bars in the microwave and then serving it with ice cream all week. My only complaint is that I've gained 10 pounds...
We LOVE these!! I find that 1 cup of fruit preserves is better then 3/4 cup and most of the time I do half strawberry or raspberry (my favorite) and half apricot or peach (dh's favorite).
