Berry Oat Squares

Just a super quick post tonight. I still had some wild blueberries that hadn't been used up. Since I didn't want these babies to go to waste, I cooked up a batch of Berry Oat Squares from La Dolce Vegan.

These squares are relatively simple with lots of oats. The filling is raspberry jam mixed with blueberries. The bottom crust is cooked first, then you layer the berries and the crumb topping. Both the top and bottom are crunchy, you gotta love it! If you have La Dolce Vegan, I highly recommend this recipe. I'll be making this again at some point, I am sure.

I only brought 1 to work today and I am craving more oatmeal fruity goodness!

I'll have to go out for a bike ride or something tonight to work off the calories. These are great!

Why have I not made these? I love coconut, and have jam.

Oops! I thought they were Dreena's coconut jam squares - looks similar! Still would love to have one..

These bars look great. I wonder if they can be made with fresh fruit instead of jam

Wow, those look really good. I've seen that recipe, but I don't have jam so have never made it. I'll have to look for some vegan jam next time I'm at the store.

Thanks everyone these bars are really awesome. If you get a chance, make 'em.

Jess - I actually like these more than Dreena's coconut rasberry bars. Those are good, but in a different way. They are very delicate with the coconut crust. These are more substantial with the oatmeal and I dig the fresh blueberries.

Teddy - I used fresh wild blueberries and raspberry Polaner all fruit. You might be able to switch to completely fresh fruit filling though.

Vegandiva, tara, and michelle - Thanks for stopping by, it is cool to see some new people. I'll started to poke around your blogs last night, but will definitely spend more time checking them out.

Heather - I may have to pop one in the freezer for you. There are only a few left now. On Saturday, it sounds as though I am heading to the hot air balloon festival in RI. Maybe we can get together in the city on Sunday though.

Jody- You inspired me to make these and I posted it on my blog, giving you credit :)
