Gave this recipe 5 star, because chocolate in between the layers, and chopped almonds were mixed into streusel, which made the bars taste heavenly delicious.

Ingredients

or whole wheat flour
1 ½ cups rolled oats
(quick or oldfashioned)
½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar
firmly packed
*
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat oven to 375℉ (190℃).

Combine flour, oats, sugars, baking powder and salt.

Cut in margarine until mixture is crumbly.

Reserve 1 cup for streusel; set aside.

Press remaining oat mixture onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch square baking pan.

Bake 10 minutes.

Spread preserves over crust; sprinkle evenly with chocolate pieces.

Combine reserved oat mixture and almonds; sprinkle over chocolate pieces, patting gently.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.

Note: I used whole wheat flour, ½ cup applesauce, 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil to make the crust and streusel. It's moist, crumbly and delicious.

Made this chocolate raspberry streusel squares as well. Again, used whole wheat flour, cut down the fat by using 1/2 cup applesauce, 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Gave this recipe 5 star, because chocolate in between the layers, and chopped almonds were mixed into streusel, which made the bars taste heavenly delicious. Again I baked them in the loaf pan, not sure why I did that, but the result was still outstanding, so who cares loaf pan or baking pan :)
