Jackie's Healthy Lekvar Bars

Everyone seems to love these and they are sooooo easy! They can easily be made dairy-free. Lekvar is a thick, chunky fruit jam made in the Balkans. I use my n0-cook freezer jam (sweetened with honey) and it is wonderful. Great to take to a potluck.

Jackie's Healthy Lekvar Bars:
1 cup sucanat
1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil), melted
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 to 2 cups lekvar (plum jam) or any jam you'd like

Preheat over 350. Mix first five ingredients together, press or roll in the bottom of a stoneware bar pan or cookie sheet. Cook 15 minutes in oven. Take out, carefully spread 1 to 2 cups of jam over the crust. Cook another 10 to 15 minutes (jam should be cooked into the bars). Let cool all the way, cut into bars and serve.
