Raspberry and Chia Jam Oat Bars

Oats and fruit is one combination that always works and no more so than in these Raspberry Chia and Oat Bars. These bars are gluten free, Vegan and refined sugar free. They would make the perfect quick breakfast served with greek yoghurt or an on the go snack.

Despite eating my body weight in chocolates over Christmas I could definetly continue. However, when I was thinking of a recipe I fancied doing the day after Boxing Day, it was a fruit and oat bar that came to mind.

The raspberry and chia jam that sits in the middle of these oat bars is the simplest to make combining only frozen raspberries, fruit syrup and chia seeds. The chia seeds not only add Protein but also provide a nice texture to the centre which works perfectly with the soft crumbly oat mixture.

To the oat mixture I added in Protein powder which is optional and the recipe works equally well without. However, as you guys know I like to add a bit of extra Protein to my snacks to ensure I reach my Protein target for the day and this little bar packs 8g of Protein.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 The coconut flour works great in this recipe, let me know how you get on if you try them. Oh and i also use a tbsp of coconut flour in my oats which is amazing! xx

  1. What fruit syrup do you use? Can you make your own from fruit juice? Sorry if this is a daft question but not sure what to do about that part or how to substitute..thanks!

    1. Hi, I use fruit syrup by a company called ‘sweetfreedom’. You could also use low calorie maple syrup or you can buy zero calorie fruit syrups online. Hope that helps but let me know if you have anymore questions 🙂
