    These are some of my favorite bars. I use Trader Joes reduced sugar jams and vary the flavor profile, depending on the jam I use. So good. 10 ounce jar is just right of reduced sugar or juice sweetened jams for this recipe. I sometimes add some spice to the oatmeal mixture to change it up, as well.....

    These are now my go-to bars. I have used frozen blueberries and strawberries. Always turns out great. A real hit!

    Can I use Gluten free flour and coconit sugar instead?
