Apple Quinoa Bars



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. In a small bowl, beat egg, 1 tablespoon of sugar, vanilla and oil.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix quick oats, oat flour and flaxseed meal.
    Combine liquid ingredients with flour mixture. Use your hands
    or a small food processor.

  4. Put dough into 8x8 inch glass baking pan and press down to
    form even crust. Bake for 30 minutes.

  5. Put sliced apples with 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon of sugar
    into a nonstick pan, cover and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes,
    checking and stirring to prevent burning, add water if necessary.
    Remove apples from the pan and drain the liquid.

  6. Remove baked crust from the oven and spread apricot jam over
    the crust using a pastry brush; top with cooked apples and
    sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Continue baking
    for 15 more minutes. Cool for 30 minutes before cutting.
