|Prep Time||25 minutes|
|Cook Time||40 minutes|
- 1 cup almond meal
- 2 1/2 cup rolled oats or quinoa flakes (GF)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sunflower or coconut oil (melted)
- 4 tbsps. maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tsps. lemon rind
- 300 grams frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup raspberry jam (optional - for a more gooey finish)
- 2 tbsps. Chia seeds
- Preheat the oven to 160 ºC. Line a square 8 x 8 baking pan with baking paper and set aside.
- Add 2 cups of oats to a blender and blend until they have become an oat flour. Transfer to a large bowl and add remaining oats so that the mixture now has chunks of oats.
- Add remaining crumble ingredients (almond meal, brown sugar, oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract). Combine ingredients using hands or wooden spoon until mixture has formed into a sticky dough.
- Measure out ½ a cup of the dough and set aside for the topping.
- Lightly wet your hands before spreading the remaining mixture into the bottom, sides and corners of the pan.
- To make raspberry mixture: clean blender and add frozen raspberries, (jam-optional) blend until all raspberries are broken down into little pieces. Transfer to a bowl and add lemon rind and chia seeds and spread filling over the crust. Grab remaining oat dough and crumble over the top of the slice evenly.
- Bake until the top is golden brown or until the raspberry fling is bubbling deliciously. Let the slice cool before slicing.
