Blackberry Oatmeal Crumble Bars

These bars will remind you of the breakfast bars that are on the market these days.  They are very easy to put together and you can really use any jam/preserves that you like.  I used the blackberry because I had some that my mother made and because I really like blackberries.  If you don't like the blackberry seeds you can buy the seedless to use.

They travel well too.

 This is homemade blackberry jam but you can use any kind you have.
 Start with a yellow or white cake mix.  Be sure to save those boxtops for education coupons.
 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats.  Make sure it is the quick cooking.
 Kind of stir those together.
 Melt 3/4 cup butter
 Add to the oat mixture.  Stir well until all the dry ingredients are combined.  It might take a little bit but the longer you mix the better they get.
 Layer about half the mixture in a sprayed 9x13 baking dish.  Press it down well.
 Measure out 1 cup of the jam.  If it is too thick add 1 Tablespoon water to thin it down some.
 Spread the jam on top of the mixture in the bottom of the pan.
 Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top of the jam.  Place in a preheated 375 oven.  Bake for 18-23 minutes.
 It's nice an golden brown.  Let cool completely before cutting.
 Cut and serve.  I think you will like these little bars.
