Cherry Chocolate Oat Bars

Adapted from Cooking Light

Yield: 16 servings

Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Set aside. Combine sugar and butter in a medium bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture to butter mixture, and stir until well blended (mixture will be crumbly.) Remove 3/4 cup of dough; toss with chocolate chips. Set aside. Press the remaining dough into an 8-inch square baking pan, and spread evenly with preserves. Sprinkle with chocolate chip mixture. Bake at 375° 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
