to 24 depending how large you cut them
non-stick spray or butter
for greasing pan
peanut butter or cookie butter
packed light brown sugar
preserves / jam
(I used strawberry preserves)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease 13” x 9” x 2” pan.
If desired, create a sling to lift bars from pan when cool, by lining pan with 2 layers aluminum foil that overhang the long sides of the pan. Grease the foil.
With mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, salt and baking powder.
Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and mix until just combined.
With mixer running on low, sprinkle in cold water and then add the oats. The dough should be crumbly.
Press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the pan. Spread the jam over the base.
Use your hands to press the remaining dough into crumbles and place them on the jam.
Sprinkle any loose crumbs and crumbles over jam layer.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crumbles are golden brown and the jam is bubbly.
Cool completely and loosen any stuck edges with a sharp knife or thin spatula.
If using a foil sling, gently lift to cutting board. Cut into desired size bars.
