Baked Oatmeal Raisin Bars

I always try to have a batch of these (somehow chewy & crunchy) oatmeal bars baked up, they are great for snacks, or on the go breakfasts if you're in a rush. They have no sugar either so they are so much healthier than store bought cereal or granola bars. Try them as an alternative to cookies with a glass of almond milk too!

  • 3 cups gluten free oats
  • 1//2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup (some vegans don't eat honey)
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a shallow square baking pan with baking parchment paper.
  3. Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl, and press firmly into the baking pan.
  4. Bake for approximately 35 mins or until golden brown, turning the pan around halfway through.
  5. Let cool for 5 mins, cut the bars to whatever size you fancy, and then let them completely cool before storing them in your cookie jar!
Why not try out your own flavor combinations? Pecan & maple syrup? Chocolate chip & cranberry? Peanut butter & banana? The chocolate chip one is so yummy served warm & gooey with vegan ice cream for a dessert. :)
