HEALTHY BLUEBERRY OAT BARS
1 1/2 cup Oat flour
1 1/4 cup Rolled oats
1/3 cup Maple syrup
1/3 cup Coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
BLUEBERRY CHIA SEED JAM
2 cups Blueberries
3 tablespoons Maple syrup
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon Lemon zest
Combining the Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the crust ingredients: oat flour, rolled oats, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, salt and vanilla.
Squeeze the batter with your hands to bring all the ingredients in contact and create a dough that sticks together.
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.
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.
Bake the bar for 35 minutes or until crispy on top and golden in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C).
Cool and Slice
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.
