Strawberry Banana Oat Bars

You'd never believe that these soft and chewy strawberry banana oat bars are vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and made without any butter or oil!

For the strawberry chia jam:
2 cups (350 g) frozen strawberries*
2 Tbsp (30 ml) maple syrup
2 Tbsp (14 g) chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the banana oat bars:
2 cups (160 g) rolled oats, divided**
1 tsp baking powder
2 medium-sized ripe bananas, mashed (200g or 1 cup)
1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Make the jam:
Add strawberries and maple syrup to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the berries begin to release their liquid, about 5-15 minutes depending on whether or not they were thawed first. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until berries begin to break down and thicken, about 5 -10 minutes. Use your spoon to break them apart further if desired.
Stir in the chia seeds and vanilla, continuing to cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the jam to cool. It will continue to thicken the longer it sits, which is why I usually like to make it the night before I'm planning on making these bars.
