  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter (or margarine), room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Egg CreationsTM Original Liquid Eggs, well shaken
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) Robin Hood® Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Robin Hood or Old Mill® Quick Oats
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) ground flax seed
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda and salt, each
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) Smucker’s® Pure Strawberry Jam
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) toasted almonds, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9” x 9” (22 cm x 22 cm) baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until light. Whisk in eggs and vanilla. In a medium bowl whisk together, flour, oats, flax, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Pour into wet ingredients and stir until combined.
  3. Spread 2/3 of batter evenly into pan and spread with jam.
  4. Add almonds to remaining batter and drop evenly over jam to create a cobbled effect (there will still be a lot of jam showing). Bake 30 minutes or until golden and surface is firm to the touch. Remove from oven and cool in pan completely. Cut into bars.
