Oat & Nut Bar…that can be ‘cooked’ & stored in freezer!!

Super Seedy Oat Bars

 

It starts with seeds, & lots of them! Seeds are an essential part of a plant-based diet.

They’re like little nutritional powerhouses.

  • For instance, flax/linseed, sunflower & chia seed are incredibly high in fibre & healthy fats, including Omega 3s.
  • Sunflower seeds are also rich in vitamin A, D, E, K, zinc, magnesium & selenium – nutrients that protect virtually every square inch of our bodies.
So healthy, naturally sweetened, & perfect as an on-the-go snack. Oats are great for the nervous system: packing in calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, folic acid, Vitamin B5 & phosphorous.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews, almonds, or walnuts (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup gogi berries/dates (chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp sunflower seeds (roasted or raw)
  • 2 Tbsp flax seeds (ground) or LSA mix
  • 2 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar or rice bran syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 1/4 cup creamy salted natural peanut butter or almond butter

Optional Additions:

  • Chocolate chips, dried fruit, other nuts/seeds, banana chips, mango etc.

Instructions

  1. Toast your oats  & nuts in a  176 C oven for 13-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown (or in fry pan on stove top).
  2. Place oats, nuts & gogi berreis/dates in a large mixing bowl. Add seeds & set aside.
  3. Warm agave & peanut or almond butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir & pour over oat mixture & then mix, breaking up the mix to disperse throughout. Use a spoon or your hands to thoroughly mix.
  4. Transfer to an 20x20cm dish or other small pan lined with  parchment/baking paper so they lift out easily.
  5.  Cover with parchment/baking paper & press down with something flat, such as a book, to get them really packed tight. This will help them from being crumbly. Chill in the fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes to harden.
  6. Remove bars from dish & chop into 10 even bars.  Store in an airtight container for up to a few days. You can even keep them in the freezer!
