This is a delightful recipe that I whipped up in a flash trying to experiment with new things for our family to have an occasional sweet treat.  There is nothing yummier then cake in a small bar filled with organic preserves.  Although I made it gluten free for my son to be able to enjoy you don’t have to!

For this recipe you will need:

1 box of organic yellow cake gluten-free mix or you can use 1 cup of coconut flour and ½ cup of almond flour.  If you are using the coconut and almond flour it makes this a vegan treat.

2 1/2 cups Organic Raw Gluten Free Oats

1 cup of organic applesauce instead of butter or ¼ cup of organic raw coconut oil

3/4 cup of organic coconut oil

12 ounces of homemade organic Preserves or store-bought but watch the sugar content in this.

  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Combine cake mix, and the oats in a large bowl; stir in the applesauce and coconut milk until the mixture is grainy.
  • Measure half of this mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Press into pan to cover the bottom.
  •  With a spoon place your preserves over the cake mixture in the pan and spread evenly.
  • Cover the preserves with the remaining cake mixture.
  • Make sure all is nice and even on top.
  • Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, until top, is lightly browned.
  • When cooled, cut into bite-sized bars or larger snack bars.
  • Eat immediately or refrigerate for p to 5 days.
