Oatmeal Raspberry Bars

I found this lovely recipe here but due to wanting to make it that very second and not having any coconut in the cupboard I opted that out of the equation
1 1/4 cup of plain flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup oats
raspberry jam

put flour, sugar & salt in a mixer, add butter, blend until it forms a dough 

transfer to a bowl and knead in the oats 
Reserve 3/4 cup of the dough 
press the rest of the dough into a sq baking pan (lined with greaseproof paper)
spread jam over the top 

crumble reserved dough over the top of the jam
 I also sprinkled on some cinnamon sugar that I'd made previously

bake 180 for 20 mins
cool totally in the pan

then cut into breakfast size bars and enjoy
Omgoodness these bars were gorgeous, really simple to make, but you can make so many different flavours with the basic recipe :)
