Updated: Sep 10

Try saying that 5 times fast.



Ingredients

Oat base

1 1/2 cups oats

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup oil/melted butter

1 tbsp cinnamon


Berry filling

2 cups blackberries

1 tsp cornstarch

Dash of cinnamon


Streusel

7 tbsp flour

1/4 cup cold butter, chopped

1 tbsp brown sugar


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. Make the oat base by combining the ingredients and pressing the mixture down onto a parchment paper covered baking tray.

  3. Make the berry filling by mashing the ingredients together until berries release some juice but there are still large pieces. Pour over the oat base.

  4. Make streusel by incorporating the butter into the flour using a fork in a pressing motion, then use your fingers to crumble it all together. Sprinkle over the berry filling.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes.


Calories

Baked goods are often high in sugar, fat, and carbs. As someone who bakes often, I have to watch how much I eat. I love to eat. I do. I also love to have a healthy body. That being said, I appreciate when a recipe states a calorie count. So I've decided to provide that for you.


total calories: 1869

*I didn't factor in the streusel because, to be honest, I only used about half of mine and depending on how much you want, it will vary.


Now divide that number by how many bars you cut, and that will equal the calories per serving. As you can see below, I made 12, so each bar was 155 calories. What I love about these is that they aren't just a guilty treat, they can be for your breakfast meal, so these keep in mind that these are calories to fuel your day.

I was lucky enough to pick these blackberries myself! They were much larger than store-bought berries. I made these bars as a quick breakfast solution for early morning work days. The oats, cinnamon, berries, and streusel come together in comforting, delicious bites. Perfect with tea or coffee. Make these on a Sunday night to enjoy on the weekday mornings, or maybe as a weekend brunch treat. These bars are also easy to alter with different fruits, whatever is on hand. Blueberries, apples, peaches, yum!

Love,

Rachel
