Cream Cheese Mixed Fruits Oatmeal Bar

Pin It Now!

I like to use rolled oat when come to baking. Using it in bar recipe definitely is my favourite way of baking. I had bake with this bar recipe for many times but with different fillings. Until now I still enjoy it !

Today I'm using cream cheese as filling. Who doesn't like cream cheese? Actually it is inspired by a bakery shop of my neighbourhood. The mixed fruits cream cheese is baked as tart filling. Since I'm not big fans of pastry tart I decide to bake the cheese filling in between rolled oat bar. Like other oatmeal bar chewy texture with firm muffin-y cream cheese filling. I like to munch them whenever I feel hungry.

~ cream cheese filling
125g cream cheese, softened
60g butter
50g castor sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg

1 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

60g dried mixed fruits
50g raisins
1 tablespoon flour
*mix and set aside. Make sure dried fruits are well coated and separated.

110g butter
50g sugar
1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

50g bread crumbs (can replace with flour)
120g all-purpose flour (sift)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
180g rolled oat (added in 2 batches. Keep remaining 30g for the topping)

1. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla extract. Beat till well combine.

2. Fold in the dry ingredients from (B) except rolled oat till well incorporate. Stir in 150g of rolled oat.

3. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the lined square pan (I’m using 8”). Add the balance of 30g rolled oat into the remaining dough.

4. Spread the cheese filling evenly on top.

5. Crumble the dough over the cheese filling. Gently press to make it tight.

6. Bake in the preheated oven 180C about 25-28 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool. Cut once completely cool.
