Raspberry and Walnut Oaties

This was a bit of an experiment, loosely based on a recipe for Cranberry and Walnut Oat Slices I'd seen in Jo Pratt's 'In the Mood for Food' and I'm pleased to say they were a great success.

I think I've now found the perfect mid morning pick me up.

200g Porridge Oats
200g Plain Flour
250g Unsalted butter, softened
175g Soft Brown Sugar
Zest 1 Lemon
100g Walnut Pieces
340g Jar of Raspberry Jam

Step 1: Preheat oven to 200c and butter a 20cm square cake tin and line with baking paper
Step 2: Rub the oats, flour and butter together until you have course crumbs. Mix in the sugar, lemon zest and walnut pieces, then press half into tin.
Step 3: Spread jam over the top then scatter remaining oat mixture over.
Step 4: Bake for 35 minutes and leave to cool in tin before cutting into squares
