   Three of our favorite summer berries - blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries-  are used to make this delicious and easy-to-prepare breakfast bar.  Apple Pie Spice, True Cinnamon and a hint  lemon perfectly flavor the berries and really complement their tart-sweet juices.  Try them as a snack or a breakfast treat.  It is a kid favorite and loaded with goodness. Mmm!

 

Apple Pie Spice, True Cinnamon

 

Ingredients:

1 cup of each:  Blackberries; Raspberries; Blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 Tblspns water

1 Tblspn lemon juice

1 tsp Apple Pie Spice

2 tsp True Cinnamon

1 cup flour (Note:  can use 3/4 cup gluten-free flour & 1/4 cup flaxseed meal)

1 cup quick-cooking oats

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/8  tsp baking soda

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

 

Directions: 

 

In a saucepan, combine the berries, water, lemon juice, Apple Pie Spice, and 1 tsp True Cinnamon.  Bring to a boil and then simmer (stirring frequently), for about 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Remove from heat & set aside.   In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, 1 tsp True Cinnamon, and baking soda.  Stir in the melted butter and mix until thoroughly combined.  Set aside 1 cup of this mixture for the topping.  Add the walnuts to the remaining mixture and stir to combine.  Press the walnut mixture crust  (firmly) into the bottom of a (non-greased) 9  x 9 inch baking pan.  Bake the crust in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Pour the berry mixture over the top of the baked crust, spreading it evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the berries and press it lightly.  Return the pan to the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden.  Cool completely in the pan before cutting it into bars.
