Strawberry Oat Squares (Oh She Glows Recipe)

Strawberry Oat Squares (Oh She Glows Recipe)

Introduction

Healthy fruity oat squares! Nutrition info adapted slightly (non-vegan), using BUTTER instead of Earth Balance (I do not have this), and brown sugar (rather than sucanat).

A nice alternative to a "nutri-grain" type cereal bar. Mix up the flavors using different fruits!

Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    For Oat Base:

    1.5 cups regular oats
    1 cup whole-grain Kamut flour (or mix of white and whole wheat)
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp sea salt
    1/2 cup Sucanat sugar (or brown sugar*)
    1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds+ 4 tbsp warm water, mixed)
    1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Earth Balance, melted (or butter* if not vegan-- nutrition calculated with unsalted butter)
    1/4 cup pure maple syrup
    2 tbsp almond milk
    1 tbsp sesame seeds (for topping only)


    For Strawberry Jam:

    Ingredients:

    2 & 1/4 cups chopped strawberries, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces OR approx 1 cup pre-made jam
    3-4 tbsp sugar, to taste
    1 tbsp chia seeds

Directions

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a square pan (I used a 9◊9) with parchment paper and oil the sides of the pan and base. In a medium sized pot, add the chopped strawberries and sugar. Heat over low until the strawberries begin to sweat and it gets a bit watery. Once it heats down a bit, add in the chia seeds, and stir well. Bring to a boil and then simmer over low to medium heat for at least 10 minutes. Once it has thickened a bit, remove from heat and cool for 5-10 mins. You may also add arrowroot powder to thicken it up more if desired, but I didnít have any. In a small bowl, mix the chia or flax egg and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the oat base dry ingredients: oats, flour, Sucanat/brown sugar, baking soda, salt. In a small bowl, mix the melted earth balance, maple syrup, almond milk, and chia egg. Stir well. Add the wet mixture (reserving 1/2 cup of the mixture) to the dry and mix well, using hands if necessary. Pour the oat mixture onto the square pan and press down with fingers. Use a pastry roller to smooth out if desired. Pour on strawberry mixture and smooth out. Now sprinkle on the reserved 1/2 cup oat mixture and sprinkle on. Now sprinkle on 1 tbsp of sesame seeds or coconut. Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes. Allow to fully cool for at least 30-40 minutes before gently removing from pan. Slice and then store in a container in the fridge to keep firm.
