  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • ½ c. butter or margarine, softened

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F (180º C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix everything together except the strawberry jam.
  3. Measure out 2 cups of this mixture. Leave the rest in the bowl, and set it aside.
  4. Take the 2 cups of the mixture and press it into the bottom of a square (8" x 8") pan coated with shortening or nonstick spray. You can use your hands or a spoon. Make sure you cover the entire bottom of the pan!
