Description

Perfect for breakfast or any meal of the day!

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • ¼ cups Steel Cut Oats
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Slivered Raw Almonds
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 10 Tablespoons Butter, Melted And Cooled Slightly
  • 1 cup Cherry Preserves

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line an 8×8 pan with foil and spray with nonstick spray—you don’t have to do this but I promise it makes the bars infinitely easier to get out of the pan.

In a bowl whisk together the old-fashioned oats, steel cut oats, flour, brown sugar, almonds and salt. Stir in the honey and melted butter; the mixture will be crumbly. Press half of the oat mixture into the bottom of the pan. Spread the preserves evenly on top. Sprinkle the remaining oatmeal mixture evenly on top of the preserves layer and then gently press it together—don’t press down too hard but gently apply pressure so that it doesn’t remain in the crumb state.

Bake at 350ºF for 30-40 minutes, or until the jam is bubbly and the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely before cutting into bars. Enjoy for breakfast with a glass of milk!

Love these! The whole family gobbles these up as soon as they are cool enough to eat. Even the super picky 4 year old loves them and that’s saying a lot! I always put a layer of frozen blueberries or blackberries on top of the jelly/jam for some fruit.

My family LOVES this recipe. They are very easy to make and are beautiful. I’m considering ways to package them to give away to guests who attend our annual Christmas party so they can enjoy them the morning after.

My family loved these. Although I cheated a bit and put dark chocolate chips on top right after they came out of the oven and spread it a bit after they melted. Truly awesome! Now I’m thinking white chocolate chips and raspberry, or apple butter and cinnamon chips?
