Preheat the oven to 350F
Butter an 8" square baking or cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, salt, and baking soda.
Add the coconut oil (preferably melted), honey, and maple syrup.
Transfer about 2/3 of the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Pack the mixture down firmly.
With a spoon, spread the jam or preserves over the dough.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 mixture over the preserves.
Finish with a sprinkle of oats to cover any bare areas.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Allow to cool completely before cutting.
