These gorgeous layered berry oat treats epitomise breakfast in a bar: Made with healthy, nutritious ingredients like oats and fruit, but great to transport if you need to grab something on the go. You could use other berries – whatever you have in the house! – and also play around with using different nut butters to suit your taste. Either way, you can guarantee they will be irresistible!
Berry Crumble Oat Bars
- For The Base & Topping
- 150g rolled oats
- 100g oat flour
- 50g coconut sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100ml coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- For The Filling
- 300g blackberries
- 4 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a 9x9in baking tin.
Place the oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, coconut oil and almond butter into your Ninja Kitchen Auto IQ and pulse lightly a few times so the mixture comes together.
Place ¾ of the mixture into the tin and use your hands to press down to cover in an even layer.
Place the blackberries and coconut sugar in a pan and simmer for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Stir in the chia seeds and set aside for 20 minutes to thicken.
Spread this over the base in one layer to cover then sprinkle over the remaining mixture all over the top and press down lightly.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden then leave to cool completely before cutting into 9-12 squares. Enjoy!
