Strawberry Jam Bars

Jam Bars

A super simple bar where the delicious crust is also the topping!


  • 250 ml your favourite jam (a little less is ok too!)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup flour (can use WW Pastry Flour)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar (optional, but recommended if your jam isn't super sweet)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a square tin with parchment paper (for easy removal!)

  2. Combine the dry ingredients together and then gently mix in the melted butter. If you are using sugar stir it in here too.

  3. Pat two-third of the mix into the bottom of the pan

  4. Spread the jam over it

  5. Scatter the remaining crumble over top

  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, the crumble should be nice and golden. 

  7. Let cool in tin for 5 mintues. Then lift the parchment paper and bars onto a wire rock to cool. Cut into desired shapes

Recipe Notes

  • for a fun twist you can add a little citrus zest (1/2 tbsp) into the crumb mix to compliment the jam you are using. So lemon for strawberry, orange for blueberry etc.
