Blackcurrant Oat Bars Recipe @

It's a time for my weekend baking and am craving for a quick but tasty dessert that can be put together  in  less than 15  minutes.    Any guess?

Definitely my choice  goes to  Blackcurrant Oatmeal Bars  reason  being I am able to make use of fruit jam  that sits idle in my pantry for quite some time.

Oats are a favorite of my diet and often incorporated into bars and desserts.  Not only oats are versatile and inexpensive but they offer a host of health benefits. The oatmeal gives  a nice chewiness to these  bars.

Spread dough onto bottom of baking pan coated with butter.  Spreading dough with wet hands is the easiest method before topping it with fruit jam. I used blackcurrant jam but any jam you have on hand will do preferably a  quality and not too sugary ones.

Blackcurrant Oat Bars  are easy to make and fantastically delicious! Have given some to my friends, they love them and keep asking for more...
