Black Cherry Oatmeal Bars Recipe

blck ch oat bars tw 28416

Oatmeal bars (or just oats in general) are great for boosting your energy and giving you a much-needed top up of fibre, known to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. And apart from being full of health-benefits, added with flavours of cinnamon and vanilla, these oatmeal bars make a tasty snack to eat on the go anywhere.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks (226g) unsalted room temp butter
  • 2 x 2/3 cups of white sugar
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp grounded cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 big jar black cherry preserve

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF / 175ºC.
  2. Grease a baking pan (I used a 20 x 20 cm / 8 x 8 in) with butter and leave to the side.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together really well.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  5. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of the baking pan.
  6. Spread the preserves over it in an even layer.
  7. Crumble the remaining mixture, with your hands, over the raspberry preserves.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  9. Cool completely before cutting.

If you can’t get hold of any Black Cherry preserve then it’s just as easy to make your own – if not easier as you don’t need to leave the house! All you need is pitted black cherries, sugar and lemon. Glaze the cherries with sugar and leave for a couple of hours then simmer on a low heat for 1 hour.

This is the simplest of all sauces to make, and none has a purer, more irresistibly sweet tomato taste. I have known people to skip the pasta and eat the sauce directly out of the pot with a spoon.

How to Make It

Step

Put either the prepared fresh tomatoes or the canned in a saucepan, add the butter, onion, and salt, and cook uncovered at a very slow, but steady simmer for 45 minutes, or until the fat floats free from the tomato. Stir from time to time, mashing any large piece of tomato in the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Taste and correct for salt. Discard the onion before tossing the sauce with pasta. Serve with grated Parmesan.

Notes

May be frozen when done. Discard the onion before freezing.

Recommended pasta: This is an unsurpassed sauce for Potato Gnocchi, but it is also delicious with spaghetti, penne, or rigatoni.

Chef Cheese Your Way OccasionDairy Ingredients , ,
Yields4 Servings
Ingredients checklist
 1 tsp sea salt, plus more
 8 oz baby spinach
 1 1⁄2 cups breadcrumbs
 1 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more to garnish
 1⁄2 cup ricotta cheese
 1⁄4 cup olive oil
 1 egg, lightly beaten
 All-purpose flour, for dusting
 6 oz taleggio cheese
 3 tbsp unsalted butter
 12 fresh sage leaves
 1 1⁄2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Instructions
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain spinach, then plunge into a bowl of ice water. Drain spinach, squeezing out any water, and finely chop.
  • .In a large bowl, mix the spinach with the 1 teaspoon of salt, the bread crumbs, parmesan, ricotta, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and the egg until evenly combined. Divide the dough into 14 balls. Working with 1 ball of dough at a time, flatten the ball in the palm of your hand. Add 2 teaspoons of taleggio and wrap the dough around the cheese. Dust each ball with flour and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze dough for 45 minutes.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Working in 2 batches, add the dumplings to the water and cook until they float, about 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer dumplings to a plate. Save 1⁄3 cup pasta water.
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high. Add dumplings and cook, turning as needed, until golden, about 6 minutes. Add the butter and sage and cook, basting the dumplings, 2 minutes longer. Transfer the dumplings to a serving platter and add the reserved pasta water and the vinegar to the skillet. Bring it to a boil and reduce the sauce by half, about 8 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the dumplings and garnish with more parmesan.
