Squeeze the batter with your hands to bring all the ingredients in contact and create a dough that sticks together.

Press Dough

Press 1 + 3/4 cups of the dough all over the baking dish, using a spatula to smoothen the dough and making sure there is no hole left. Set aside leftover dough in a small mixing bowl, in the fridge

Prepare Blueberry Jam

In a small saucepan, add the blueberries, maple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest and chia seeds

Cook Blueberry Jam

Cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat until bubbles form on side of the pan.

5

Mash Blueberries and Pour

Mash the blueberries using a fork or potato masher and keep cooking for 2 minutes, stirring all the time to avoid burning the jam. Pour the jam on top of the prepared crust then use the remaining dough to crumble all other the bar.

6

Bake

Bake the bar for 35 minutes or until crispy on top and golden in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C).

Cool for 3 hours or until it reaches room temperature before slicing into 16 bars. Waiting will prevent the bar from crumbling and the jam will set perfectly.
