Ingredients

For the blueberry chia jam:

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons 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 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F. 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.
