Who doesn't love PB&J!!

This slice makes a delicious & filling breakfast or snack.

You can replace the nut butter & berries with other similar items if you choose.

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups rolled/traditional oats
  • 2 cups plain flour of your choice
  • ½ cup peanut butter (100% peanuts)
  • ¼ cup butter/vegan butter melted
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups berries of your choice (I used strawberries)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 180 C

In a saucepan, place the berries & chia seeds on a high heat, stirring regularly until it begins to thicken. Remove from the heat to cool

In a food processor or high-speed blender, blend the oats until they are a course-flour like consistency

Add the flour, salt, baking soda & cinnamon & stir until well combined

Add the peanut butter & melted butter  to the dry ingredients & mix until it clumps together. If the mixture is too dry, add a little water

Place around ¾ of the mixture into a lined baking tray & press firmly until it’s evenly distributed & tightly packed

Place the cooled jam on top of the base & spread out evenly

Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the jam

Place in the oven & bake until the crumble is golden brown

Allow to cool, then slice your brekkie bars into whatever shape you like.
