Coconut Jam Bars (Dairy, Egg, Grain/Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

If I haven't said it before I am a big fan of coconut.  These squares definitely satisfy my coconut cravings.  They are not only gluten free but can be made grain free as well.

Ingredients for bottom layer -crust
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond flour 
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tablespoon honey or other natural sweeteners
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
Ingredients for middle layer -jam
  • 1/2 cup of your favourite jam 
    • (I like Crofter's as it is sweetened with grape juice and doesn't contain added colour)
Ingredients for top layer -coconut topping
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 teaspoon guar gum
  • 1/2 cup honey other natural sweeteners

  2. Combine all ingredients for the bottom layer and press into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375F.
  5. Spread jam evenly over baked crust.
  6. Combine all ingredients of your top crust and gently place on top of jam layer.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
