Vegan Raspberry Jam Bars | Aromatic Vanilla Cake

I like any dessert with a crumbly streusel kind topping, like fruit crisp or pie and these Vegan Raspberry Jam Bars! I’ve been eager to make these for some time, since I’ve a great quantity of Jam from Eric’s Dad.  He makes the very best jam and he despatched us an entire bunch! The raspberry is my favourite, he makes it with the berries he grows in his again yard.  We discovered make some once we visited him final 12 months (he lives just a few states away), however he’s the jam grasp. I used to like jam bars rising up so I believed I’d make a veganized model. I’ve made different jam bars, however they have been extra difficult ones with nuts and whatnot in them, and I simply needed easy ones like those I remembered this time.

I like these as a result of they’re straightforward to make. Bars are superior in that manner, there isn’t any rolling required or something.  Which is why my Mother turned lots of her cookies into bars.  Th dough for these jam bars is nearly like oatmeal cookie dough. I used a mix of entire wheat pastry flour and rolled oats for the bottom.  These are components that I all the time have readily available, particularly the oats as a result of I’ve eaten oatmeal every single day since I used to be in highschool.  Plus I like oatmeal cookies.  Should you do not occur to have entire wheat pastry flour you need to use common all function flour and that can work simply advantageous. I’m all about attempting to make use of what you’ve gotten readily available and never make additional journeys to the shop.

As an alternative of the butter that was within the authentic bars, I used coconut oil in these and it labored good!  It provides it a pleasant sweetness and the identical quantity of richness.  As an alternative of eggs I used flax eggs (1 Tbsp floor flax seed blended with 3 Tbsp water  = 1 egg), as a result of I take advantage of these loads at work in my vegan baked items with good outcomes.  You should use both maple sugar or brown sugar in these, both are scrumptious.  The dough was scrumptious earlier than I even added the jam!  Sure, I prefer to pattern dough, that is among the greatest elements of baking!

I needed a great thick layer of jam so I added 1 1/2 cups, as a result of I really feel like lots of jam bars do not have sufficient and it’s important!  They’re known as jam bars in any case. As soon as I added the jam, popped them within the oven and so they have been baking they smelled superb!  I couldn’t wait to attempt one.  However I waited till the subsequent day since I made them at evening and I needed them to chop properly.  They turned out tremendous scrumptious!  Candy, tart gooey raspberry jam, simply the correct quantity with a buttery crunchy oatmeal topping and crust!  These are so easy however so good!  In case you are within the temper for one thing candy, give these Vegan Raspberry Jam Bars a attempt!
