Raspberry Oat Bars
¾ cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 ½ cup rolled oats
1 ½ cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 10-ounce jar raspberry preserves
Preheat oven to 400 ° F.
Grease a 9x13" baking dish and set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar, mixing until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine rolled oats, flour, salt and baking powder. Stir oats mixture into butter mixture and mix
until well combined. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of prepared baking dish. Spread raspberry preserves
