Fruit Bars

These are super easy, and with the granola and fruit in them, I just might eat them for breakfast!

1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C oats
1 C brown sugar
1 3/4 sticks butter (softened at room temp) cut into pieces
1 10-12 oz jar of raspberry preserves (could use apricot, strawberry etc)

Mix all ingredients together except for the preserves. Press 1/2 of the mixture into a buttered 8" baking dish.
Spread the preserves over this layer.
Sprinkle remaining crumb topping over preserves layer-tap lightly in place.

Bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes, or until top is lightly browned and preserves are bubbling.

I serve them hot with vanilla ice cream, but they are delicious cooled!
