How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350° F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with 2 crisscrossed pieces of parchment, leaving an over-hang on all sides.

Step 2

Pulse the oats, flour, and 1 cup of the almonds in a food processor until finely ground. Add the butter, sugar, baking powder, and salt; pulse to combine. Reserve ½ cup of the crumble mixture. Press the remaining mixture into the prepared pan using a straight-sided dry measuring cup or glass.

Step 3

Spread the jam over the bottom crust. Coarsely chop the remaining ¼ cup of almonds. Scatter the almonds and reserved crumble mixture over the jam.

Step 4

Bake until golden brown and set in the middle, 35 to 45 minutes.

Step 5

Let cool completely. Holding the paper overhang, transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 12 bars. The bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Chef's Notes

Tip: The bars can be frozen for up to 1 month. To make them lunch box-ready, wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then place in a resealable plastic freezer bag.
