Fresh strawberries have started making an appearance at the farmers market and I am elated! As soon as I got my hands on a box of strawberries I set about jam making. My family can polish off a bottle of chia seed jam in record time. We slather it on pancakes, porridge you name it. But this time round I had made a HUGE batch of jam and wanted to find a way to use it up even faster. The downside of having a natural jam is that it can actually go bad and my heart would break if I had to throw it out. Since the jam went so well with oatmeal I decided to bake it into these Oat Crumble Bars. They are absolutely delicious and can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack or even dessert. I love having them with my afternoon tea alongside a tall glass of Coconut Oil Coffee.

These Oat Crumble Bars aren’t difficult to make at all. Let’s get started!

Make flax egg by combining 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespoons hot water and set aside. If your honey and coconut oil are solid like mine were melt them together in a small bowl in the microwave. Combine all crust ingredients in a large bowl. Don’t forget to add the flax egg! I almost did. Scoop 3/4 of the crust mixture into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Use your hands to press down the mixture. I use my Lekue hamburger press to get it all nice and flat and even.

Pour Berry Cherry Chia Seed Jam over the crust surface using the back of a spoon or spatula to spread it out evenly.
