Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

A classic combination kids love, these bars are good for after-school snacks or breakfast on the run for the bus. Feel free to substitute your favorite flavor of jam or jelly.


1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
7 tablespoons margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/4 cups flour
1-1/4 cups quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup all-fruit variety strawberry jam


Cream peanut butter, margarine, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add flour and oats and mix well. Press half of the mixture into an 8x8-inch baking pan. Gently spread jam over mixture. Layer remaining oat mixture over jam and press lightly. Bake at 300 degrees F for about 40 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
