This recipe uses the following equipment (affiliate links):
- Rolled oats uncooked (2 cups). Be sure to use rolled uncooked oats (also known as old fashioned oats). Do not use steel cut or quick oats.
- Peanut butter (⅓ cup). You can use either creamy or chunky. I have not tried this with a different nut butter, like almond or cashew, but they would probably be equally delicious.
- Grape jelly (½ cup). You can substitute your favorite jelly or jam here.
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Spray an 8" square baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
