    Vegan raspberry squares! enjoy at any time of the day!

    1 ½ cups of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
    ½ cup of apple puree, homemade and unsweetened
    3 tablespoons of agave nectar
    ½ tablespoon of vanilla extract
    2 ½ cups of rolled oats*
    ½ cup of apple puree, homemade and unsweetened
    1 tablespoon of baking powder
    4 tablespoons of agave nectar
    ½ tablespoon of cinnamon
    1 dash of vanilla extract
    3 tablespoons of sugar
    6 tablespoons of water

    Process the raspberries with the apple puree, agave and vanilla.
    Set aside.
    Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F. Process 1 ½ cup of rolled oats. In
    a medium bowl mix the oat flour with the remaining rolled oats
    and the rest of ingredients, until it comes together.
    Place ¾ of the oat mixture on a long oven pan (I used a long, thin
    one for portion control), previously spread with non-stick spray.
    Spread it out with a spoon to make it as thin as possible. Cook in
    the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven (carefully!) and put
    the raspberry mix on top. Spread the rest of the oat mix on top
    and cook for 20 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and brown for 5
    more minutes.
    Enjoy them for a breakfast on the go, at tea time or with a tasty
    blend of green tee.
    * Make sure your oats are certified gluten-free.

    These look so good. I love raspberries

  2. Would applesauce work instead of apple puree, or would the consistency be too thin?

    Apple puree works better because it gives it a crunchier taste! you can also grated if you don’t want to make pure!

    Just made these with blueberries instead of raspberries. They turned out well, except I would use less sugar next time– maybe only 1 tbsp agave to the fruit or none at all. I would also use more fruit– as it was, I added some extra whole berries after I processed the filling. Overall though, a really great vegan recipe! Thanks.

    Sooo good, made these last night. Used stevia instead of sugar and just added a little more water in place of the agave nectar. Turned out beautiful – my husband LOVED it!! Thank you :)
