Oatmeal and Jam Bars

We had a wonderful three day weekend, but today it's back to reality!  John is back to work and we are expecting a HUGE snowstorm today...which I was slightly in denial about...until it starting snowing at the exact time they (the weather people) said it would...and we seem to be getting more than an inch per hour! UGH!  How many days until spring?

What do you like to do when it snows?  I BAKE!  Does that surprise you?  I didn't think so!

These Oatmeal and Jam Bars are Cake Mix Recipe #24!  I think that they are the perfect treat for a snow day breakfast!  They would also make a great and filling snack to enjoy with a cup of coffee when you are finished shoveling snow!

Yup, that's only 4 ingredients! 

Here's What You Need to Make the Oatmeal and Jam Bars:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 1/2 cups oats (I used old fashioned oats because I wanted a chewier texture - but you could also use quick cooking)
  • 2 sticks of butter, melted
  • 1 cup of jam - I used a seedless Raspberry

Now Let's Make the Oatmeal and Jam Bars:
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cake mix and the oatmeal
  3. Add the melted butter and stir until a dough forms
  4. Divide your dough into thirds and press two thirds of the dough into the bottom of your greased pan
  5. Use a spatula to spread the jam oven the top of the dough - spread it almost to the edges of the pan
  6. Crumble the remaining one third of the dough onto the top of the jam layer
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 25 - 20 minutes until the topping is a light golden brown color
  8. Cool completely in pan before cutting into squares and storing in an airtight container
