Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars
Peanut butter and jelly bars 😋Rich, peanut buttery oat bars slathered with strawberry fruit spread (or whatever flavor you enjoy), with a glass of milk on the side and you’ve got a classic combination that never disappoints 🍇🍓🤤🥛
🍓 Serving: Makes 16 bars
🍓 Time: 45 minutes (prep + cook time)
✔️ 1 cup rolled oats 100 grams, use gluten-free if needed
✔️ 1/2 cup almond flour 45 grams
✔️ 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
✔️ 8 Medjool dates pitted and sliced
✔️ 3.5 tablespoons coconut oil melted
✔️ 3/4 cup raspberry jam or fresh raspberry puree or use any other jelly or jam
✔️ 4 tablespoons creamy peanut butter slightly melted
Line a 8 x 8 inch square pan with aluminium foil. Spray with a non-stick spray and set it aside. Pre-heat oven to 350 F degrees.
To a food processor add oats, almond flour and salt. Then add the pitted dates.
Add the coconut oil and pulse the mixture in your food processor until the mixture resembles wet sand. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan.
Press the mixture firmly into the pan, using the back of a measuring cup or any glass to make it really compact.
Bake the crust in a pre-heated oven at 350 F degrees for 15 to 17 minutes.
Take the crust out of oven once baked, let it cool for 2 to 3 minutes and then pour over the raspberry puree/jam. Spread the jam all over the crust using a spatula or knife.
Then drop dollops of peanut butter (should be slightly melted) on top of the jam. Use a toothpick to create a swirl effect.
Return pan to the oven and bake for another 17 to 19 minutes at 350 F degrees.
Take the bars out of oven and let them cool. Then cover and refrigerate for few hours before cutting into squares.
