Before I say anything, I want you to know that these heavenly things are not ONLY for breakfast, they can be for a snack, a dessert, lunch, or if you're out of ideas and want to make something SUPER easy, dinner.
So, I'm just saying, these things are........... AMAZING. I had allot left over from breakfast so I had them for a snack, then later, dessert. THESE ARE VERY EASY AND DID NOT DISAPPOINT. (Another words, these were nummy!)
first, measure 1 1/2 cups flour....
And an equal amount of oats.
My oats are kinda, OLD, so They are kinda uh, "broken?"
Then throw in 1 teaspoon baking powder,
1/2 teaspoon salt,
And 1 cup packed brown sugar. Mix to combine.
After that, throw in 1 3/4 sticks and this is very important: SLIGHTLY SOFT butter.
See this? It's not supposed to look like this.
After you cut the butter into the mixture, pres half the mixture down into a 8" square pan.
Spread some apricot preserves (I used plum, that's all I could find in the fridge) and lightly pat the rest of the mixture on top.
I didn't take a picture of me putting the preserves on because I'm a ninny.
Bake that at 350 for 30-40 minutes, or until light brown. Let them cool completely and cut into squares.
I... I could barely wait to cut into these things, they smelled so good as they were baking.
And I WILL sit down, and sink my teeth into this beautiful creation.
