INSTRUCTIONS


1.

Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

2.

Add the berries, maple syrup, and half the water to a small pot over medium low heat. Bring to a simmer and let cook 4-5 minutes until the berries have cooked down and are soft, adding a little more water if needed.

3.

In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with the remaining water and add to the berry mixture. Mix together until combined and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and set aside.

4.

In a food processor combine the oats, flour, peanut butter, melted butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Process until it is fine and sticks together when pressed between your fingers. If you don’t have a food processor, you can do this with a mixer.

5.

Firmly press ¾ of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, spread evenly with the blackberry compote, and crumble the remaining oat mixture on top.

6.

Bake for 30 minutes and cool completely before cutting into bars. Refrigerate in a sealed container.
