Makes: 16 bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Nutiva Shortening
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup gluten free baking mix
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raspberry preserves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9X9 in pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl cream together shortening and coconut sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat just until combined.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together baking mix, almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until combined.
  5. Using a spatula, fold in 1 1/2 cups of the oats, setting aside the remaining 1/4 cup.
  6. Spread 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and top with the rasperry jam, spreading evenly.
  7. Combine remaining 1/4 cup of oats with the rest of the batter. Use your fingers to drop blobs of the dough on top of the raspberry spread. Note: spread will show through in spots.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes and cool on a wire rack before cutting.
