Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour blend or all-purpose, GF is not a concern
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Earth Balance or other plant-based butter spread
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips non-dairy
  • 1 cup cherry or raspberry jam

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 and line 8x8 baking try with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, oats, flax, baking soda, sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (or food processor) and mix or pulse until just combined and crumbly. Dough will stick together when you press in your hand. Save 3/4 cups of the dough and set aside.
  • Press the remaining dough into the base of the prepared pan and then spread with jam.
  • Sprinkie reserved dough on top of jam. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  • Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before cuting into squares.
