oatmeal jam bars for a quick back to school breakfast

These oatmeal jam bars are perfect for back to school. You can package them up and kids can grab one on the way out the door. 

I like to double the recipe and keep some in the freezer as well.

And, in honor of back to school {hopefully your kids are going back, but if not, they will like these at home too!} I added these little hello stickers to the front of them and wrote oatmeal jam bars. 

Wouldn't these also be cute packaged for a school bake sale? 

Oatmeal jam bars for a quick back to school breakfast-

I used these clear bags and just tied them up with ribbon.

I recommend using a really good jam for this recipe, homemade jam would be so good!
Even though this is a pretty decadent treat, it still could count as a grab and go breakfast.

I remember when my kids were little and breakfast before school was such a challenge. You want to get something in them before they head off, but mornings were always so rushed.

These homemade oatmeal jam bars are the perfect thing for those kind of mornings!

Yield: 8

Prep time: 10 MCook time: 30 MTotal time: 40 M


  • 1/2 C coconut oil melted
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 1/2 C quick oats
  • 1/3 C good maple syrup
  • 1/3 C granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C best raspberry preserves


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except for preserves.
  3. Using your hands press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of your pan until it's even and relatively flat.
  4. Gently spread preserves, leaving 1/2" around the outside. (The preserves will scald if up against the edge of the pan.)
  5. Using your hands, evenly crumble the remaining 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the preserves and lightly press so the crumbles stay in place after baking.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes on a center rack until lightly browned on top.
  7. Let cool in pan on top of a cooling rack. Cut and serve!
