Jam Twists

1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed using package instructions

1 9.5 oz jar of your favorite Modern Provisions Jam

1 egg

Preheat oven to 400°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Thaw the puff pastry and remove any paper that came in the package. Use a rolling pin to thin each piece of puff pastry to roughly 10”x16”.

Spread the jam evenly over one sheet of puff pastry. Layer the second piece over it and gently press together.

Cut the puff pastry in half horizontally, then cut into vertical strips to create 24 pieces. Gently twist each piece and place on two baking sheets. Mix the egg with 1 teaspoon water and brush lightly over each piece.

Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden, rotating the baking sheets after 10 minutes.

Cool and enjoy.

Almond-Oat Jam Breakfast Bars

It should be no surprise that as someone who enjoys making jam, I also often make my own almond milk (it’s seriously easy if you’ve never tried). But the thing is, I always wind up with about a cut of almond pulp and have to think of creative ways to use it. One of my favorites is to bake it into these filling jam bars. Not too sweet, they’re perfect for breakfast or to keep around for when you need a quick snack.

If you don’t just happen to have almond pulp sitting around, you could easily substitute almond flour.

Almond-Oat Jam Breakfast Bars

Ingredients

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

1 cup almond pulp or almond flour

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 tablespoon ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons water (let sit at room temperature for a few minutes)

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

8 oz blueberry pie preserves

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish with foil; grease with coconut or vegetable oil.

Mix all ingredients together except for the jam. Press two-thirds of the mixture into the baking dish covering the bottom and about a half-inch up the sides. Spread jam over evenly over the dough, then sprinkle with remaining one-third of the mixture.

Bake for 30 minutes or until bottom is set and the top crust is lightly browned.
