Jam bars

These Jam Bars were given to me from a very good friend  and a great cook Joy Freeman (as known as Aunt Joy for our girls) when she was a dorm parent @ Sahel Academy, in Niger. It was handwritten on a piece of paper, used it many times over the years and my husband’s favorite. But every time I have to find the recipe, I have to look for it … so today decided to make the recipe and add it to my food blog. Bon appétit.


1 cup of sugar

3/4 cups of butter

1 1/2 cups of flour

1 1/2 cups of oats ( I like to add 1 /2 cup more)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda


Put all ingredients in a food processor.


Mix them well until it looks like a crumble.


In a cake pan 9 x 13, put half of the oat crumble on bottom. Press down to make a crust.

Put some jam of your choice and spread equally on the bottom – and add the rest of crumble on top.


Bake @ 350 for about 20 min. Check often.
