Breakfast peanut slices with almonds and strawberry chia jam

I can’t believe we’re over halfway through September. It was definitely August last time I checked! Time goes by so fast! So once again I asked you on my Clean Eating Facebook page which recipe would you like me to put up and the yummy breakfast peanut slices with crumble, sliced almonds and strawberry chia jam have won. No wonder, they are truly scrumptious and loaded with good ingredients perfect for  breakfast , on the go or as a snack.

Breakfast peanut slices with crumble and strawberry chia jam

Before we get onto the recipe, I just want to say don’t worry if you don’t have fresh strawberries. You can use any berries and even  frozen ones. I have made it before with frozen blackberries and it was equally yummy, if not better!

Breakfast peanut butter, crumble  and strawberry chia jam bars

Ingredients:

Strawberry chia jam:
2 cups of diced strawberries
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
3 -4 tbsp of chia seeds
splash of water
Simmer all ingredients on low heat until thicken. Set aside to cool down

Slice base + crumble
2 and half cups of gluten free oats
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey
1 small apple blended to apple sauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1 flax seeds egg or for vegetarian option you can add normal egg
1/2 – 3/4 cup of sliced almonds

Process:
Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
Combine oats, apple sauce, cinnamon and egg. Mix maple syrup and peanut butter together and put in a microwave for 20 sec. Pour into the oats mixture and combine thoroughly so all oats are fully coated.

Now set 1/2 cup of the oats mixture aside and put the remaining  mixture in to a square glass dish. Press firmly down. Spread the strawberry chia jam on the top. Crumble the reserved 1/2 cup of oat mixture over and top up with sliced almonds. Press the topping down making sure it sticks well.
Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy loads!

Much love,

Hedi
