Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    MIXED BERRY CHIA SEED JAM (MAKES 1 CUP)
    2 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
    3 tbsp pure maple syrup
    2 tbsp chia seeds
    1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

    OAT SQUARES
    1/3 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
    1/4 cup pure maple syrup
    2 tbsp brown rice syrup
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    2 1/2 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup oat flour
    3/4 cup brown rice flour
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    scant 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.

2. For the jam: In a medium pot, combine the mixed berries, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the berries begin break down. Once it looks more like a liquid, use a potato masher and mash the berries until the mixture is smooth and thick. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Transfer the mixture to a bowl place in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes, until cool.

3. For the oat squares: In a small measuring cup, mix together the flax seeds and water. Set aside for about 5 minutes until thickened.

4. In a large bowl, stir together the melted oil, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, and vanilla. When the flax egg has thickened, stir that in too.

5. One by one, stir in the rolled oats, brow rice flour, oat flour, baking soda, and salt until the mixture comes together. It will be slightly sticky, but this is normal.

6. Spoon about 2/3 of the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Spread it out with a rubber spatula or place a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and press it down.

7. When the chia jam has thickened and cooled, pour all of it on top of the oat mixture and spread it out evenly.

8. Take the remaining 1/3 of the oat dough and crumble it evenly on top of the chia jam.

9. Bake for 25-30 minutes, uncovered, until the topping is lightly golden.

10. Place pan directly on a cooling rack for 20-30 minutes and then carefully lift out the square and place directly onto the cooling rack until completely cooled. Slice into squares.

11. Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
