- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup Coconut palm sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2/3 cup (fruit sweetened) raspberry jam
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Mix in the coconut oil and spread half, about 2 cups, of the oat mixture into a lightly oiled 8-inch square baking dish. Press mixture down with the back of a large spoon or use your hands.
Spread the jam carefully over top and then sprinkle the remaining oat mix on top. Press the oat mixture slightly into the jam.
Bake for about 35 minutes or until the top is golden. Cool before cutting into squares and serving.
