Made these bad boys the other day in order to have some healthy snacks around the house. Since I work from home, I find myself wandering into the kitchen more often than I care to admit.
For these bars, I used steel cut oats, but next time will be subbing in old fashioned oats as the steel cut made for a crunchy rather than chewy texture.
I used this recipe from Song of Style’s youtube channel. Like I said, I swapped in steel cut oats (was out of old fashioned oats), added some flax seed and agave syrup to her original recipe.
- 1 cups oats of your choice
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup flax seed
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1 tsp. of agave syrup (if desired)
- Handful of dried cherries (if desired)
- Chopped almonds or walnuts (if desired)
Mix thoroughly, spread mixture of oats, coconut oil, chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seed, and hemps seeds on parchment paper and cook on 350° for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, mix in dried cherries, agave syrup, any chopped nuts and place in parchment-lined loaf pan.
Freeze for 1 hour, remove and slice into bars!
