Spelt, Oat and Fig Bars

I was delighted when my farmers market friends brought me a basket of fresh figs from their garden. I'd previously purchased their homemade fig jam and decided I'd make something with the two ingredients.

Realizing I did not have wheat berries to grind for the flour, I reached for spelt berries. Spelt is a variety of wheat widely cultivated until the spread of fertilizers and mechanical harvesting left it by the wayside in favor of wheat more compatible with industrialization. It can be used in place of common wheat in most recipes. 

Here's the delicious whole grain convection I made:

Spelt, Oat and Fig Bars

(Serves 8)

Mix oats, flour, sugar, salt and buttery spread in a bowl. Divide mixture in half into two bowls.
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup spelt flour
3 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup buttery spread, melted

Mix egg and baking soda in a small glass.  Stir into the halved oat mixture.
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Press mixture into a baking dish (approximately 8 X 8) greased with olive oil spray.

Top with jam, spread across bottom layer.
1/4 cup fig jam

Cut fresh figs in quarters.  Arrange in twos across top of jam.
4 fresh figs, stem removed, quartered.  

Add remaining bowl of oat, flour, sugar, salt and buttery spread.
Press oat mixture into pan.

Bake at 350 20-25 minutes until top is lightly brown.

Cut into 8 bars.
