Ingredients
  • For the blackberry filling
  • 1 package Driscoll's Blackberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ tbsp corn starch
  • juice from 1 lime
  • For the oatmeal cookie base and topping
  • 2¾ cup ap flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ cup oats
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside.
  2. Combine blackberries, sugar, corn starch and lime juice in a medium sauce pan over high heat. Stir until mixture begins to bubble.
  3. Reduce to a simmer and let cook, stirring frequently, until it thickens.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  5. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together sugars, egg, coconut oil and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  7. Gradually add in the dry ingredients.
  8. Add the oatmeal and mix until well combined.
  9. Scoop half of the batter onto the prepared baking pan.
  10. Pour the cooled blackberry filling over top and use a rubber spatula to spread evenly over the oatmeal cookie batter.
  11. Spread the remaining batter over the filling as best as you can. It's okay if the filling may seep through around the edges.
  12. Bake for 30 minutes or until the blackberry filling starts to bubble.
  13. Change oven setting to broil and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the top is browned to your liking.
