I thought these bars were great, but my two sisters hated them. Not sure why, but I really, really, liked them, so I'm still giving them 5 stars :) They were super easy to make as well. I used quick oats, and they worked very well. The only change I made was to line my pan with Reynold's Release nonstick foil instead of greasing it...I could lift the finished bars out easily, which made cutting and removal much easier, and the bars looked much nicer. I also used the bottom of a measuring cup to press the oat mixture into the pan...it worked great and wasn't messy at all. Thanks for sharing the recipe...I'll be making these again!

Super easy bars!! I heated up the Raspberry Preserves in the microwave for about 45 seconds before spreading them on top of the bottom layer of oats to make it a little easier to spread and it worked like a charm!!!

Love how easy it was to whip up a dessert! These are really good. Subbed Red Plum Jam instead since out of raspberry preserves. A bit too sweet (not because of the jam)so next time I will cut back on the sugar a bit by maybe a tablespoon or so. Will make again! Mine are still too hot to eat but I keep picking at it anyway. So yummy! ***Update 3 days later: I just had to make some more! I love these. I subtracted 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and it was perfect for me. ***Update 4 days later: Used vanilla extract instead of almond. Love it this way the best!
