Berry Oat Bars

A delicious and simple morning treat!

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 9 bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C coconut oil melted
  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour or gluten free substitute
  • 1 1/2 C quick oats
  • 1/3 C maple syrup
  • 1/3 C coconut sugar or granulated
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C raspberry preserves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except for preserves. 
  • Using your hands press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of your pan until it's even and relatively flat. 
  • Gently spread preserves, leaving 1/2" around the outside. (The preserves will scald if up against the edge of the pan.)
  • Using your hands, evenly crumble the remaining 1/3 of the mixture over the top of the preserves and lightly press so the crumbles stay in place after baking. 
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes on a center rack until lightly browned on top.
  • Let cool in pan on top of a cooling rack. Cut and serve!

Notes

I love to make a batch of these at the beginning of the week and the kids and I grab a bar when we need a quick breakfast or snack. YUM!
