YIELD: 16-24 bars




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 13x9-inch pan, and line with foil or parchment paper.
  • Lightly grease paper/foil (I use cooking spray) Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, and rolled oats.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly.
  • Press half of the crust mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Slice the guava paste into enough pieces to cover the crust within 1/4 inch of the edge, and place in pan.
  • Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over guava paste layer, and lightly press down with the back of a fork or spatula.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes in preheated oven, or until crust is lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool in pan on wire rack before cutting into 16-24 bars (depending on the size bars you cut).
