What goes in raspberry jam oat bars
Whereas these are made with raspberry jam, it may be made with any jam flavour your coronary heart wishes. Strawberry, blueberry, marmalade, apricot!
Jam – As famous above, any flavour jam you need can be utilized! I used raspberry.
Rolled oats – Not fast oats or steel-cut oats. Simply plain conventional oats.
Flour – Simply plain / all objective flour. Wholemeal / wholewheat flour will work too. I haven’t tried with gluten-free flour or almond meal (floor almonds).
Butter – Unsalted butter. No have to carry to room temperature as we are going to soften it.
Sugar – Brown sugar provides pretty caramel-y flavour to the bottom. Nevertheless, for those who’re out, white sugar may be substituted.
Egg – A big one, from a carton labelled with the scale “massive”. Business commonplace is 55 – 60g / 2 oz every.
Baking powder – Simply 1/2 teaspoons provides a little bit of raise. It doesn’t make the biscuit base cake, it simply prevents it from baking right into a concrete block.
Salt – Only a pinch, to carry out the opposite flavours. It doesn’t make it salty.
The making half – fast & simple!
One oats biscuit combination is used for the bottom and the crumbly topping. Handy!
Oat cookie combination – Soften the butter in a bowl within the microwave. Combine in sugar, then egg, then the flour, oats, baking powder and salt.
Unfold in pan – Line a 20cm/8″ sq. metallic pan with paper with overhang to make it simple to raise out later. Unfold 1 1/2 cups of the oat combination throughout the bottom. I partially unfold it out utilizing a wood spoon, semi chopping / urgent the clumps. Then I end it with my palms.
Press the bottom in firmly and make the floor moderately easy. We’re making a country dish right here, so no have to go to city on an extremely easy floor.
Unfold jam throughout the floor. In case your jam is a bit agency jelly-like, you would possibly wish to heat it up briefly to make it simpler to unfold.
Crumble remaining oat combination throughout the floor utilizing your fingers.
Bake for half-hour at 200°C/400°F (180°C fan-forced) or till the floor is golden. Cool within the pan earlier than lifting out utilizing the overhang paper and chopping into 16 squares.
TIP to hurry up the cooling: cool half-hour on the counter, half-hour in fridge.
