Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

 

Simmer the Strawberry Chia Jam ingredients on low heat until it thickens. Set aside to cool down

Then make the slices:

Combine oats, apple sauce, cinnamon and ‘egg’.

Mix maple syrup and peanut butter together and put in a microwave for 20 seconds.

Pour into the oats mixture and combine thoroughly, so all the oats are fully coated.

Now set 1/2 cup of the oats mixture aside and put the remaining mixture into a square glass dish. Press down firmly and spread the strawberry chia jam on the top.

Crumble the reserved 1/2 cup of oat mixture and sliced almonds over and press the topping down making sure it sticks well.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.
