Soaked Breakfast Bar

My girls enjoy these for breakfast or snacks.  We like them with either chocolate chips or apple butter inside.  Thanks to Just take a Bite for a great recipe!
Soaked Breakfast Bar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup kefir, yogurt or buttermilk
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter, melted (I used coconut oil)
1/2 cup rapadura/cane sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. honey
1/3 – 1/2 cup jelly, jam or fruit butter
Mix flour, cultured dairy and oil.  Cover and let soak 7 – 24 hours.
Mix in remaining dough ingredients until well combined.  Spread half of the dough into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven.  Spread an even layer of jam on top of dough.  Spread remaining dough on top.  Bake at 350 for another 25 minutes.
Cut into bars.  Place bars on a separate baking sheet, with space in between bars.  Bake another 5-10 minutes, until dough is baked through.  Allow to cool.
