Cherry Oatmeal Crumb Bars



Yes, I know, ii crumb/streusel topping type recipes inwards a row. I tin’t assist it! These bars are and so elementary as well as and so proficient. You can modify them upwardly a one thousand thousand different ways past using whatever season of jam or preserves y'all similar. They are pretty good for you too. Not too much saccharide and I used mostly kokosnoot petroleum instead of butter (only half-dozen T. butter inward the whole recipe). These are perfect for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or alongside a cup of tea or coffee.


Look at that crumb topping. Gets me every time.

For the bars:

one c. whole wheat pastry flour

three/4 c. rolled oats

i/iii c. brownish sugar

1/iv c. melted coconut fossil oil

2 T. unsalted butter, melted

i one/ii tsp. cinnamon

i/ii tsp. salt

ane/ii tsp. baking soda

i tsp. vanilla

3/four c. jam of your option (I used black crimson)

For the crumb topping:

four T. unsalted butter, melted

1/iv c. rolled oats

ane/iv c. chocolate-brown sugar

iii/4 c. whole wheat pastry flour

i/ii tsp. table salt

one/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a nine×ix baking dish amongst cooking spray. Set aside. In a medium bowl, add together flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, in addition to baking soda, in addition to whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together brown saccharide, butter, coconut petroleum, as well as vanilla. Stir dry ingredients into moisture, in addition to run together with your hands into a dough. It volition be crumbly. Once it comes together, press the dough into the pan, flattening amongst your hands until even. Spread jam over dough, leaving nigh ane/ii inch at the edges.

For the crumb topping, whisk together butter, brownish sugar, too table salt until polish, and so stir inwards oats and flour until moistened in addition to crumbly. Crumble the crumb (don’t know how else to enjoin it) over the meridian of the bars evenly. Bake for 35-forty minutes until gilded in addition to until the eye is no longer jiggly. Let cool completely earlier cut into bars.

These can be stored up to a calendar week in an airtight container. (If they final that long).


YUM. Give me allll the crumb in addition to streusel.
