    This is an easy vegan gluten-free recipe for bake sales, after school snacks, and just anytime treats.  It’s absolutely delicious!


    1/4 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup gluten-free flour (rice or oat)
    1 Tablespoon tapioca starch
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ginger
    1 cup quick oats
    1/2 cup non-hydrogenated non-dairy shortening (I used coconut oil)
    1 cup of jam (any flavor)
    Optional: walnuts


    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a 9" pan.

    2. Mix dry ingredients together. Melt shortening and add to the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly. (If soft, but not melted, use your hands to mix).

    3. Spread 2/3 of the mixture in pan and press down tightly. (you an use a spatula to make it flat and even). Spread 1 cup of apricot jam (or any other flavor) onto pressed mixture.

    4. Sprinkle the rest of the dry mixture on top of the jam and press lightly. Optional: I added chopped walnuts as a topping. I soaked them for 10 minutes before chopping. Bake until crispy (20 - 30 min).
