Do you ever get frustrated when you want something that tastes great and you have food allergies?

I used to… It seems that I can’t even go into the stores and buy treats, because even if they are gluten free, they still seem to be filled with dairy products or sugar… That gets really frustrating!

Why not just make these simply delicious squares. They are simple to make and tastes great!

Raspberry Jam Squares

Raspberry Jam Squares (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 3/4 c. plus 1/3 c. gluten free flour mix
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
3/4 c. palm sugar (or other granulated sugar)
3/4 c. coconut oil (Melted) (Or butter if dairy is tolerated)
1 1/2 c. gluten free oats (I use Only Oats)
1 1/2 c. sugar free raspberry jam (I use ED Smith No Sugar added)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl mix together 1 3/4 c. flour mix, xanthan gum, oats and palm sugar.
Mix in coconut oil. Set aside 3/4 c. of mixture.

Press the remaining mixture into a 9 by 13″ pan that is lined with parchment paper.
Spread jam evenly over base.

Take reserved 3/4 c. mixture and stir in the 1/3 c. flour mix to make a crumbly topping and spread evenly onto squares.

Bake for 40-45 minutes. Let cool completely, then cut into squares.

You need to keep an eye on your squares!

When your back is turned someone might sneak in….

    • I see where you add the oats on here – guess when I copied and printed something was left out…….but I made them and we tried them- they were crumbly though. Maybe I will cook a little longer next time or add some extra coconut oil. I made mine with black raspberry all fruit preserves. Think I will make them with peach next and maybe add some slivered almonds in place of some of the flour for the topping.

    • Yes you can use any gf flour mix. For that recipe you could probably use regular flour although I’ve never tried it.

  1. I do sometimes still get frustrated – but I find it much easier 5 years into being vegan and 2+ being gluten free. And I’ll tell you it’s because of helpful recipes like these =)
    Thanks for sharing this over at Healthy Vegan Fridays Sandy! I really appreciate all of your contributions.
    I have pinned this recipe to our Pinterest Board.
