Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 9 bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup spelt flour (or wholewheat)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 smaller jar of blueberry jam (I used no added sugar jam)
  • Note: 1 cup = 250 ml
  • These quantities are for 20 x 20 cm / 8 x 8 inch baking pan. If you want to bake bigger quantity just double up all the ingredients and bake in a larger rectangular baking pan.
Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 175 C / 350 F.
  2. Line a 20 x 20 cm / 8 x 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper (not necessary if you use non stick silicone baking pan).
  3. In a mixing bowl whisk flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  4. Then add melted coconut oil and mix well. Take ⅔ rd of oats mixture and press it into baking dish using your fingers.
  5. Spread the blueberry jam over the oats mixture and finally sprinkle the rest of the mixture on top.
  6. Bake for about 35 min or until golden brown. Allow to cool before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
  7. Note: the bars keep well on the room temperature in the airtight container if it's not too hot. If you keep them in the fridge, they will harden as coconut oil hardens in the fridge so remove them to room temperature about 20 min before serving.
  8. If you want to make bigger quantity, just double the ingredients and bake in a larger rectangular baking dish.
