Guava “newton” crumble bars
I forced myself to clean out my pantry cabinet today. One of the items in there that I’ve been meaning to use is a Goya guava can. I bought it a year or so back after reading a book which shared that guava is super good for you. Naturally the closest thing to fresh guava which I could source is canned guava from my local supermarket. Ok! I will take it.
I needed to find something relatively goof-free and tasty to make so after some googling around, I located the recipe from Food.com . I followed it as best as I could with ingredients, but did make adjustments based on whatever I actually had on hand:
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 cups AP flour
- 1/2 ts baking soda
- 1/4 ts salt
- 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
- 1 cup rolled oats cereal
- 21 ounces guava paste
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
I baked for about 30 minutes on 350°.
I’m going to bring in this thing to work and treat my coworkers, but I couldn’t really help myself so I snuck a tiny sliver to taste tonight. It was pretty delicious! It tasted really awesome with the crumbly texture, not too sweet dough and sweet guava paste. It is reminiscent of a fig Newtons cookie instead with guava and much more interesting texture. I would make this recipe again!
