healthy jam oat bars
I got this recipe off of A Simple Pallet. Normally when I bake something I switch the recipe up, add different ingredients, change the measurements, because some recipes I am able to look at and just know umm.. that is not going to turn out good.
However, this recipe turned out amazing! I followed it exactly! Except for the timing. However, I was using a toaster oven to make mine because my oven blew up in May. It is a gas oven so we are not touching it anymore and have been advised not to use it.

This is a 6 ingredient healthy raspberry oatmeal bar recipe. Egg free, dairy free! I know it calls for raspberry but you can add any jam!
This recipe is sooo good, my entire family was impressed. We were all discussing different ways to eat it haha... It would be great for breakfast with fruit on top or for dessert with some vanilla ice-cream. That being said it was all gone in one day :)
Here is the recipe:
2 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats- I used instant and it turned out great
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup - I used maple syrup
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut oil melted
1 cup any jam
1 pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a food processor or blender, I used my magic bullet to roughly chop oats. I left some whole pieces of oats in there.
In a bowl I added all the ingredients and mixed and folded ingredients until in was all combined.
Line an 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside 1/2 cup of mixture for the crumble topping, and pour rest of oat mixture into pan. Press mixture down tightly with your fingers. Prick with fork the crust . Bake uncovered in oven for 10 minutes. I baked it for more 15 minutes - you do not want it to be golden brown because you will bake it again.
Let crust cool for 15 minutes. Dollop jam around the top and spread . Use extra oat mixture that was set aside to sprinkle as crumble on top. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, until edges of the crust are golden brown.I baked it for 30 minutes but again that is because I had to use the toaster oven. Best rule of thumb is if the bottom and top is golden brown. Let bars cool before cutting.
