August 6, 2012

Lingonberry and Fennel Oat Bars

adapted from Strawberry Honey Oatmeal Bars

makes 9 bars

9 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 3/4 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup lingonberry jam

1 tbsp ground fennel seeds (powder-like consistency)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8×8-inch pan.

Combine jam and fennel powder, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add the egg, mixing until blended. Stir in the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Batter will be slightly sticky. Using floured hands, press 3/4 of the batter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread jam evenly over the top. Crumble the remaining 1/4 of the batter on top.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly in pan before serving.
