These fabulous gluten free oat bars are without any added sugars or syrups. I used apple puree to naturally sweeten the oat layer and use a pure fruit spread for the filling.

You can also make your own strawberry jam by simmering fresh strawberries with a little water and thicken with cornflour or arrowroot. Alternatively use my chia jam recipe.

What’s good about it?

Almond nut butter is a delicious way to help bind bars without the need for sugars and syrups plus it adds plenty of protein, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals including calcium and magnesium.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.
  2. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
  3. Place the oats, flaked almonds, apple puree, almond nut butter, coconut yogurt, cinnamon and egg in a large bowl and beat well.
  4. Press three quarters of the oat mixture into the tin and press down firmly with the back of a spoon.
  5. Spread over the pure fruit spread over the base. Scatter over the remaining oat mixture and press down lightly.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until lightly golden.
  7. Allow the bar to cool before cutting into slices.
