A great recipe that uses ingredients usually on hand. A little crunch from the pecans, chewy from the oats and coconut, a bit of a shortbread taste in the buttery crust, and the sweet chocolatey jam center! Yum! The original recipe comes from recipebridge.com.
1½ cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold butter
1½ cups oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup raspberry jam
Heat oven to 350°. Line 13″x9″ pan with foil, ends of foil extending over sides. Spray with nonstick spray. Stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add oats, coconut, and nuts; mix well. Press half crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over crumb mixture. Spoon jam evenly over top, dropping in small blobs. Spoon remaining crumb mixture over the top. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan until set enough to use foil overhang to lift bars from pan; place on wire rack. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
