    Raspberry Oat Bars

    Forget those prepackaged bars, you can make your own! These raspberry oat bars are crunchy, sweet, and come from your very own kitchen. 


    Ingredients
    1 1/2
    tablespoons
    ground flaxseed
    1
    cup
    sliced almonds
    2 1/2
    cups
    oats
    1/2
    cup
    whole wheat flour or spelt
    1/2
    teaspoon
    baking soda
    1/3
    cup
    melted coconut oil
    1/4
    cup
    maple syrup or agave syrup
    2
    tablespoons
    brown rice syrup (optional)
    1
    teaspoon
    vanilla
    *
    pinch of salt
    *
    raspberry jam
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    In a bowl, combine flaxseed and four cups of water, let hydrate. Set aside.
    In a food processor, pulse almonds until you have a sand like texture. Be careful not to over process (or you'll end up with almond butter!).
    Add oats and pulse again. Add flour and baking soda and pulse until well mixed.
    In a separate large bowl, mix the oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and drained flaxseed. Fold in almond, oat mixture. Mix well (the batter will remain sticky.)
    Using a square pan, layer in 3/4 of the mix, pressing with both hands until firm. Cover with raspberry jam and layer with final 1/4 of the mix.
    Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the top is firm and golden brown.
