Fruit and Oat Bars
1 C all-purpose flour
1 C uncooked quick oats
3/4 C packed light brown sugar

1. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Spray 9 inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

2. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in medium bowl; mix well. Add margarine; stir with fork until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 3/4 C crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture evenly onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Spread preserves onto crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.

Thanks for sharing. It sounds a lot like my recipe for apple crisp except yours calls for preserves instead of apple pie filling (I make my own though so it's healhier.)
