Egg-free oatmeal-jam bar cookies

Submitted by on Friday, 28 November 2008 No Comment
This is based on a recipe from Kraft Foods clipped from TV Guide long ago -- remember when they used to do those inserts around the holidays?

I revived it recently when manufactured food paranoia threw cereal bars and toaster pastries out of the house. The guys don't like it quite as well -- after all, these aren't advertised on commercials -- but they've learned to accept it.

I've healthed it up a bit, substituting whole-wheat flour and cutting the amount of sugar No other conversions were necessary - it was egg-free from the start.
  • 1/2 c. soft butter or margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. oats
  • 1 1/2 c. whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. jam
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Cream butter and sugar. Stir in flour, soda, salt. Add oats and water, mix until crumbly. Spread half of mixture into greased 13x9 pan and pat down slightly. Mix lemon juice and jam, spread over base. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture. Bake at 350 degrees, 25 minutes.
