Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1 c all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 c rolled oats
1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 c raspberry jam (seeded or seedless, your preference)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease an 8-inch square pan and line with greased foil.

Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and rolled oats. Rub in butter sing your hands or pastry blender to form a crumbly mixture.

Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the jam to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top and lightly press into the jam.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
