Gluten-free “Nutri-Grain” Bars

Prep time:  20 mins
Cook time:  12 mins
Total time:  32 mins
Serves: 24
  • 360 grams gluten-free pastry flour
  • 125 grams gluten-free oat flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 75 grams gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 medium banana, mashed (about 120 grams)
  • ½ cup (168 grams) honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 extra-large egg at room temperature, beaten
  • 10 to 12 ounces smooth (not chunky) fruit preserves, for filling
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper and set it aside.
  3. In a large bowl, place the pastry flour, oat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, and whisk to combine well.
  4. Add the oats and mix to combine.
  5. Add the mashed banana, honey, vanilla and egg, and mix to combine.
  6. The dough will come together, and should be thick.
  7. Divide the dough into two equal portions.
  8. Place the first portion between two sheets of unbleached parchment paper and roll into a rectangle about ¼ inch thick, and 12 inches long by 10 inches wide.
  9. With a pastry wheel or very sharp knife, cut the width of the rectangle into 3 equal pieces.
  10. Separate the 3 rectangles from one another, and set them aside.
  11. Repeat with the other half of the dough.
  12. Divide the preserves among the 6 pieces of dough (3 from each original rectangle), spreading it about ¾ inch wide down the center of the length of each piece, from one end to the other.
  13. Fold each side of the dough toward the center along the length to enclose the preserves, overlapping the dough slightly. Place the filled lengths of dough in the freezer, in batches if necessary, until firm (about 10 minutes).
  14. Remove the dough from the freezer and slice each length into 4 pieces each. Place the bars about 1 inch apart from one another on the prepared baking sheets.
  15. Place the baking sheets, 1 at a time, in the center of the preheated oven and bake until the tops are lightly golden brown (about 12 minutes), rotating once during baking.
  16. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet until firm, about 10 minutes. Serve at room temperature. Place any leftovers in an airtight, freezer-safe container and freeze until ready to use.
