Jam bars....partly cloudy...70's

These are one of our favorite coffee break snacks, more wholesome than some with the oats and peanut butter, they stick to your ribs  to keep you going while your out doing the chores, and are plenty sweet enough for a nice sugar boost :)

                                                                  JAM BARS
Crust:
2 1/2 cups Rolled oats (NOT QUICK)
1 cup dry white or yellow cake mix (you’ll use the rest in a minute)
1/3 cup  light brown sugar
mix together and remove one cup, this will be used for topping later, to remaining add:
2 eggs
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
press this mixture into a well greased 13 x 9 pan ((see tip))
 
Topping:
to  the one cup of oat mixture you removed earlier add:
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dry cake mix
4 Tablespoons melted butter
stir with a fork till course crumbs form.
 
Jam layer:
sprinkle remaining DRY cake mix from package over crust in pan then spread with
 2 cups any flavor JAM ((see note))
 
sprinkle topping mixture over jam and bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes till top is lightly browned.
 
TIP: this crust mixture is very sticky it will press best if you dampen your finger tips first with cold water and use a light touch to press it out
 
NOTE: I always make this using our homemade jams which have a softer set, if using commercial jam beat a few seconds first to make it easier to spread.  any flavor works well, some of our favorites are Blackberry, Bumbleberry,  Cherry and Strawberry.  Find our Zucchini jam recipes HERE , this is what we use most of the time for these!
