Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Sugar-Free


2 cup oatmeal
1 cup whole-wheat flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
½ cup applesauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
canola oil, grapeseed oil, or any kind
1 cup strawberry jam
or raspberry jam, or a mixture of fruit jam


Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃). Well grease a 9 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix thoroughly oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, and salt.

Rub the butter into the mixture with your finger tips until a coarse meal forms.

Stir in the applesauce and vegetable oil until well combined.

Spread half of the mixture in the prepared baking pan.

Spread the jam on top.

Sprinkle the remaining dough on top of the jam and lightly pat down with fingers.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly brown.

Cut into bars when warm--they will firm up as they cool.

Note: The bars can be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Love bars, oatmeal jam bars are particularly my favorite. Because I can pretty much eat them for breakfast, snack, or even a healthy version of dessert.

Made these bars a while ago, I customized the original recipe to make it much healthier but still taste delicious. Gave a few to my neighbour, and she absolutely loved it.

Feel free to use any your favorite jam. If you are big on bars, these ones won't let you down :)
