Apricot oats bar

I had been watching giada's shows and this caught my attention. Wanted to give it a try and it turned out delicious(with slight changes)! Thanks Giada :).
Recipe ingredients 
7 oz apricot jam and 6 oz mixed fruit jam(kissan)
8 dried apricots
1 3/4 th cup all purpose flour
1 cup golden brown sugar
1 TSP cinnamon powder
3/4th TSP baking soda
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup (4 oz) chopped walnuts
12 TBSP unsalted melted butter
4 TBSP canola oil
1 large egg and 1 TSP vanilla extract

In a small bowl, mix the 2 jams and chopped apricots.
In a large bowl, whisk egg; add flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda.
Add butter, walnuts, oats, vanilla extract stir the whole dough until well mixed - this will be ur crust mixture.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (based on ur oven make).
Spread half of the crust mixture in a 11x9 in pan.
With a spatula, spread the jam on the crust leaving 1/2 inch border around the edge of the crust.
Cover the filling with the remaining crust mixture and spread evenly; slightly press to flatten.
Bake for 30 mins, until golden brown. Remove from oven and let it cool for atleast 45 mins (if you do not press the crust hard enough before baking, bars will become soft textured and might break down).
Store in air tight containers for 3 to 5 days.
