Tasty Tuesday: Fruit-Filled Oatmeal Bars


This week’s recipe comes from Cassidy’s Craveable Creations. The kids cheer when I tell them I am making oatmeal bars for breakfast. It is an easy recipe to make and I usually double it so we can get at least 2 days of breakfast from it. Here is the original recipe. I have made a few modifications to make it easier and cheaper since I don’t buy almond flour. The following are the ingredients needed (again, everything can be found through Azure Standard).

1/2 C  Almonds
1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/8 Tsp. Salt
1 C Oats (I use old fashioned rolled oats)
1/2 C Organic Butter-softened (you can use Earth Balance if you need dairy free)
1/2 – 3/4 C Jam Of Choice (we use all fruit jam- our favorite is strawberry!)
Here is the easiest way to assemble these bars. Place all dry ingredients into a food processor. Process until all ingredients are incorporated. Then add the butter and process until it looks like cookie dough. Press about 2/3 of the mix on the bottom of a glass pan. Then spread the jam on top of that layer. Finish the top of the bars with the rest of the mixture (just drop crumbles on top and it will spread as it cooks). Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. There is also a grain free version if you prefer. This recipe is so easy and delicious. If my kids had to pick their favorite breakfast, this would be it! Enjoy:)
