If you're not a fan of raspberry jam, try substituting your favorite preserves in this Raspberry-Chocolate Bar dessert recipe.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
5 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 (10-ounce) jar seedless raspberry jam
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Set aside.
Combine sugar and butter in a medium bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture to butter mixture, and stir until well blended (mixture will be crumbly.) Remove 3/4 cup of dough; toss with chocolate chips. Set aside. Press the remaining dough into an 8-inch square baking pan, and spread evenly with jam. Sprinkle with chocolate chip mixture.
Bake at 375° 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
