Homemade NutriGrain Bars

I know these don't resemble the actual nutrigrain bar, but it has the same idea. This is the best after school snack or breakfast treat. I like to use apricot jam whenever I am out of strawberry preserves. Have fun with this recipe! It's goooood. Recipe taken from

Homemade Strawberry NutriGrain Bars

1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup butter, melted
12 ounces preserves or jam
1 tablespoon water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and oats. Stir in melted butter until the mixture is crumbly.
Measure half of the mixture (approx. 3 cups) into prepared pan. Press firmly into pan to cover bottom.
Combine preserves/jam and water. Spoon over crumb mixture in pan; spread evenly.
Cover jam with remaining crumb mixture. Pat firmly to make top even.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until top is very light brown.
Cool completely before cutting into bars.
