Cheese Filled Crumb Bars
Base and Crumb Topping
- 1 cup quick or rolled oats
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour or oat flour
- 1/3 cup sugar or dry sweetener of choice
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 12 Sylphide cheese squares or 1/2 cup cream cheese of choice
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup mixed berries of choice
Preheat your oven to 180ºC and line a 20x20 cm square pan with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together all filling ingredients and set aside.
In another bowl, mix the oats with flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and vanilla. Add the oil and mix until everything comes together. It's okay if the mixture is crumbly.
Firmly press 2/3 of the mixture into the pan, reserving the remaining for the crumb topping.
Spread the cheese filling evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top and press it down tightly again.
Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 mins on the center rack until golden brown on top.
Remove and let cool completely for at least 1 hour before slicing.
