Ingredients for servings

    For the blueberry chia jam

  • 1.5 cups blueberries

  • 1.5 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • For the bars

  • 1 cup oat flour certified gluten-free if necessary

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats certified gluten-free if necessary

  • 2 tablespoon sugar

  • 0.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 0.25 teaspoon salt

  • 0.5 teaspoon baking soda

  • 0.5 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 0.25 cup maple syrup

  • 0.25 cup melted coconut oil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with coconut oil or cooking spray.

  • Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add blueberries, chia seeds and maple syrup. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Use a potato masher to smash blueberries for the “jam” layer. Set aside.

  • Combine oats, oat flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.

  • Add applesauce, maple syrup and coconut oil, stirring to combine.

  • Set aside a heaping half cup of the oat mixture and then press the rest evenly into the prepared pan. Top with blueberry chia jam, spreading evenly with a spoon or spatula.

  • Sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture on top.

  • Bake for 30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into 12 bars.

  • Store in the refrigerator.
