Scrumptious Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

You Could So Make This 
(Even If You Aren't A Baker)

1 Yellow Cake Mix
2 1/2 c. quick oats
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 c.) melted butter
1 c. raspberry jam/jelly (any flavor)
1 Tbsp. water


Combine dry cake mix, oats, and melted butter.  Mix until crumbly.  Press 1/2 of mixture onto the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch pan.  Combine jam and water (I use a 12 oz jar, dump it into a bowl, and put the water in the jar with cap on a shake); mix until smooth.  Spread over crumb mixture already in pan.  Then sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over jam filling and back at 350 degrees for 18-23 minutes.  Let cool before cutting into squares!  Enjoy....  It's so yummy!

I used Seedless Blackberry Preserves 

Does it look like YOU could make it?

  1. Looks delicious. I made bar cookies for Christmas that were similar, except they didn't use the cake mix. I made peach cobbler tonight for the first time. Hoping it came out okay. Enjoy!
