Fruity Oat Bars by Keli Cancala

I really wanted to make something fruity so I made these little oat bars with jam, simple and very quick to make. Some years back I found a recipe online which I liked but tweaked a bit and make it sometimes.

Oat bar with jam:
100 g butter
3/4 cup light, fine brown sugar
1 tbsp yoghurt or cream
1 1/4 cups pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch ...of salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup jam (used a sugar free french type, raspberry & pomegranate)

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy, add youghurt or cream. Mix flour, salt, baking soda and rolled oats together and add to butter, mix well. In a shallow baking pan press down 2/3 of the dough, put the jam on top, crumble remining dough on top. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes on 180 Celsius or until gets brownish. (It is the type which gets harder as it cools so no need to over cook).
