  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, cake mix, and melted margarine so that it makes nice clumps and there is no dry mix left. Press 1/2 of the oats mixture evenly into the bottom the prepared pan. In a separate bowl, mix jam with water, and spread over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture evenly over the top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 23 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. Cool before cutting into bars.

Oh, man, these are good! I used lemon cake mix, and instead of adding water to the jam, I used lemon juice. The lemon-raspberry combo is simply wonderful. These came together so easily; they'...

Wonderful snack! Healthy too since I replaced apple sauce instead of butter! I will make this again and again.

This is the easiest recipe with the best results. I make them the night before and cover the sheet pan with foil, and cut in the a.m. It can even be made up to 2 days ahead to be cut up on the...

I love this recipe! When the bars cool, I like to melt about 2 Tbsp. of white or cream cheese frosting in a bowl. Then I drizzle lines over the top in a lattice pattern. Gives these bars a cert...

Wonderful and quick recipe. I also only had lemon cake mix on hand, and they turned out wonderful. I also substitued the water for lemon juice. A few tips: - Do not overbake, or they will be...

I enhanced the flavor a little with adding 1/2 tsp. Vanilla and almond extracts to the dough. It really gave this recipe a boost. Will make again, thank you.
