After making my Easy Blackberry Chia Seed Jam last week, I had lots of leftover jam that I wanted to bake with. Instead of making oatmeal or a PB&J with the leftovers, I decided to make these fun and irresistible oat bars.

And let me tell you… these were my JAM (sorry, had to). Filled with bright blackberry jam and a crumbly strudel topping, these oats bars are great anytime of day!

Bright and crumbly, these oat bars were a nice morning treat. The sweet crumbly topping pairs so well with the thick jammy center. I whipped these up in the morning before work (well, working from home this week!) and they couldn’t be easier to make!

What’s in these Blackberry Oat Bars?

I’ve been baking more and more during this weird ‘social distancing’ time. We’ve haven’t left our homestead in about 10 days… so I’ve been using baking and cooking as a bit of a creative outlet. I thought turning my blackberry jam into an delectable breakfast or dessert would be a nice little treat for my husband and I!

How Do I Make Blackberry Oat Bars?

  1. Make or measure out 1 1/2 cups blackberry jam. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish.
  3. In a large mixing bowl mix together the oats, flour, flaxseeds, white and brown sugars, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Stir well to combine. Set aside 1 cup for the topping.
  4. Add the remainder (2 cups or so) of the oat/flour /sugar mixture to the bottom of the 9×9 baking dish. Press down with fingers to compact.
  5. Next, layer the jam on top evenly.
  6. Add the remaining 1 cup of oat/flour/sugar mixture to the top of the jam, spereading and crumbling the mixture evenly over the top.
  7. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until the topping begins to brown.
  8. Allow to cool for an hour before slicing. Enjoy!

One great thing about these oat bars, is that they can be made ahead of time and you can freeze any leftovers. I love an easy make-ahead recipe, and these are perfect for a little breakfast meal prep. Make a batch on the weekends, pack for breakfast during the week, and freeze any leftovers you have for later.

I’d give these a total 10/10! They were easy to make, absolutely DELISH, and used some of those pantry staple ingredients which I always have on hand.

Dietary Modifications

These can be either vegan or gluten-free. For a vegan version, use a plant-based butter instead of dairy. I made these with a plant butter and they were fantastic!

For a gluten-free option, make the oats with a non-gluten flour such as almond flour or oat flour. Or you can use a 1:1 gluten free bakingn mix.  And make sure the oats are gluten-free before using.
