Ingredients

Crumb Crust

  • 2 cups Organic Gluten Free Oats
  • 2 cups Gluten Free Flour
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup butter or butter substitute melted - I use Earth Balance Vegan Shortening
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Filling

  • 4 cups raisins chopped Or you can use dates chopped. OR you can use a mixture of both!
  • 1/2 cup sugar organic
  • 2 cup filtered water
  • 3 Tablespoons corn starch

Instructions

  • CRUMB MIXTURE: Mix all the Crumb Crust ingredients together in one bowl. I blend with a fork, then use my hand. The topping should be very crumbly but if you put some in palm of your hand, it should hold together when crunched. See the photo.
  • FILLING: Put all the filling ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to boil. Continue to simmer until thickened. Remove from heat.
  • Spread 1/2 the crumb mix into bottom of greased 9x13 baking pan. Spread with the cooked raisins and top with the other 1/2 crumb mixture.
  • Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, remove and cool in pan. Cut into squares and enjoy!
