Naturally Sweetened Whole Wheat Oatmeal Jam Bars

These have been my most recent obsession! They are so good. I am not a coconut fan, but the coconut oil is just the perfect amount of coconut flavor. I have tried them with butter but I prefer the taste and texture with the coconut oil. I often use and all fruit or honey sweetened jam.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly milled soft white wheat berries (whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (feel free to substitute butter)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup jam or preserve of choice
Method:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Butter an 8" square baking or cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oats, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Add the coconut oil (preferably melted), honey, and maple syrup.
  5. Transfer about 2/3 of the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Pack the mixture down firmly.
  6. With a spoon, spread the jam or preserves over the dough.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 mixture over the preserves.
  8. Finish with a sprinkle of oats to cover any bare areas.
  9. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  10. Allow to cool completely before cutting.
These bars can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
