Berrie Oat Wondie Bars
A favorite among many of my customers, family, and friends. The cobbler like topping over a thick layer of berries is hard to resist. These won’t last long in the house! Our favorite berry combination at Flying Apron is raspberries and blueberries.

Type of Dishdessert
- 5 cups gluten-free oats, divided
- ¼ cup brown rice syrup
- ½ cup maple syrup, divided
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3½ cups mixed berries
- ¼ cup corn flour or arrowroot powder
Place 2 cups of the oats in a food processor and pulse until the oats resemble fine oat bran. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the reserved oat flour, the remaining 3 cups oats, and the brown rice syrup, ¼ cup of the maple syrup, olive oil, salt, and vanilla until thoroughly combined, about 3 minutes.
Firmly press two-thirds of the dough onto a 9- by 12-inch baking sheet. Bake until light brown, about 15 minutes.
While the dough is baking, combine the berries, corn flour, and the remaining ¼ cup of the maple syrup in a medium-size bowl.
Evenly distribute the berry mixture over the baked oat crust. Crumble the remaining one-third of the dough over the berries, pressing it down firmly. Bake until a golden crust forms, about 40 minutes.
