I had a lot of oatmeal and a lot jam to use and I had guests coming who are on a gluten free diet. I remembered a recipe in old cookbook and decided to try substituting oat flour for the all purpose flour and butter for the margarine. I tweaked a few of the other ingredients and - Wow! If you want these to be gluten free be sure the oats and the jam are labeled, "Gluten Free". —judye
