Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cups white sugar
  • ¾ cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoons fine salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 4 ounces strawberry jam
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups strawberries chopped or sliced
  • 3 ounces white chocolate melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the chopped up cold butter and work it into the dry ingredients with your fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture looks like small crumbles. Reserve 1 cup of this mixture.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 12-13 minutes or until it is firm to touch. Do not let get overly brown.
  • Warm the jam in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir in the lemon zest. Drizzle the warm jam over the warm crust.
  • Spread the chopped strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle on the reserved cup of crumb mixture.
  • Return pan to 350°F oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes or until the crumbs on top are lightly browned.
  • Then remove it from the oven and let the pan cool for 1 hour.
  • Melt the white chocolate in microwave, following directions on package.

Notes

The preserves I used were a bit chunkier and I found that I needed a little extra of it to cover my bars so I added two more heaping tablespoons.
