All about the raspberry chia jam filling
If you don’t like chia jam, don’t worry, you can use whatever fruit preserve you want. These raspberry and oatmeal bars are delicious with any.
But making chia-jam is one of the best ways to eat chia and give all its powers to our family. Another great advantage of using homemade chia jam is that it contains almost no sugar and provides us with a lot of fiber.

- Put the almonds in the food processor and pulse 6 times until they have a sand like consistency. Be careful not to over ground them, they can turn into almond butter.
- Add the oats and pulse again until the flakes are broken. I like that some remain whole and others not. Make it your way.

- In a large bowl, combine the oil, honey, vanilla, and flaxseeds with water. Add the ground oats and almonds. Mix it well. It's going to be sticky, but it is.
- In a 9×9 baking pan put 3/4 parts of the mix. Press it very well with a glass or spoon so that everything is well compacted. Save the 1/4 part for later.
- Fully cover the first layer with the chia jam. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 part of the mixture on top.
- Bake it for about 25-35min. It's ready when it feels firm and the top is golden brown.
