How's your week, so far? Hope it's going by smoothly.
I fell completely off the non-wheat wagon with this one. It makes me happy, to be honest. ;) I've packaged them up because I do plan on sharing, and why not package them up?
Raspberry Oat Bars - makes one 9x13 inch pan
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup pecans
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cold and chopped
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups of raspberry jam
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
Preheat oven to 350f/180c. Line pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Place the flour, oats, pecans, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Add chopped butter and and egg. Mix until combined. Don't over mix. Press about half the mixture into the pan. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until a light golden colour. Allow to cool on wire rack.
In a small bowl, mix together the jam, lemon zest and cinnamon. Fold in the raspberries. Spread over top of bottom layer/crust. Sprinkle the remainder of the flour and oat mixture over top. Bake for about 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Voila!
Enjoy your day! Back soon.
