Cottage cheese bars with oat crust
This week I have been staying and baking at my friends’ house as all of my belongings and baking tools have been packed and are already on their way to Catalonia.

Lack of blender, mixer and scales forced me to create something that is very easy to prepare and does not require many tools. These absolutely delicious breakfasty bars are the result. You will only need the ingredients, an oven, a bowl, a spoon and a baking tray to prepare it.

Every day deserves to begin with a slice of cheesecake, so here you go…
