Oatmeal-Berry Bars

Nut Free Fish Free Soy Free Gluten Free 

A yummy berry bar! A favorite with the kids... or anyone young at heart!

1 cup white bean flour
1 cup pure uncontaminated gluten-free rolled oats
½ cup packed dark brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
¼ teaspoon table salt
½ cup unsalted butter or buttery spread, melted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, divided
2/3 cup berry preserves or berry jam (check label for allergens)

Place a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch square nonstick pan with foil that extends over the edges to make handles for easy removal. Grease the foil.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the white bean flour, oats, sugar, xanthan gum, cinnamon, allspice and salt until thoroughly blended. Add the melted butter and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla and mix with a spatula until crumbly. Press 1 cup of this mixture firmly and evenly on the bottom of the pan.

Mix the remaining teaspoon of vanilla with the preserves and spread evenly on top. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the preserves and pat firmly to make an even crust.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Cool bars in pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Use the foil handles to life the bars onto a cutting board. Cool completely before cutting.

Makes 16 squares.

Note: if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity check with your physician about eating pure, uncontaminated gluten-free oats.
