1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter, softened

1. Heat your oven to 350 and spray a glass 8X8 pan with non-stick spray.

2. Combine the brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats in a medium bowl. Rub in the butter using your hands or a pastry blender to form a crumbly mixture. Press 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the jam to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top, and lightly press it into the jam.

3. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool before cutting into bars. For nice looking bars, use a plastic knife, and wipe the knife on a paper towel after each cut.
