Y'all know I love easy recipes. The easier the better usually! :) I have an old cookbook that belonged to my gramma. I ran across it the other day and decided to flip through the pages. I noticed my gramma had a few words (like "try" or "good") or checkmarks here and there. I'm not really sure what the checkmarks were for? Some recipes had 2 checkmarks. Maybe it was her rating system?

After flipping through that cookbook, I wanted something kind of nostalgic and old-fashiony. Something that reminded my of my gramma. These Raspberry Jam Oatmeal Bars are super easy to throw together. They're not super sweet, but just sweet enough. It is made in a 9x9 pan, so it was the perfect size for our family to have a few treats.
