Berry Oatmeal Bars

1/2 cup  all-purpose flour
1/2 cup  whole wheat flour 
1/2 cup Old Fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 cup butter or shortening, softened 
1 egg 
3/4 cup strawberry, raspberry or any type jam {not freezer jam!}
1/2 cup chopped walnuts 

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 8-inch square pan with foil. In large bowl, mix flours, sugar, butter and egg with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly.

Reserve 1/2 cup crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture firmly in bottom of pan. Spread fruit spread to within 1/2 inch of edges. {We like jam so I used 1 cup.} Sprinkle reserved 1/2 cup crumb mixture over top; sprinkle with walnuts.
This is why you line the pan with foil. I also sprayed it with a little cooking spray. No stick-age!
Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
