Today Olivia and I went on an outing with my mom to "do" some wedding stuff for my sister. We ended our journey in Redmond at the PCC to eat a late lunch and check out the organic cakes. While there I picked up a flyer that had these bars in them. They are great for an on-the-run breakfast or quick snack. You can mix up the ingredients in the recipe to suit your tastes. Here is what I did:
Makes 18 bars
2 cups of quick cooking organic oats
1.5 cups of mixed almonds and peanuts and 1/2 a cup of organic raisins (you can use any combination of nuts, trail mix, chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries, walnuts, figs, and so forth as long as it equals a total of 2 cups.)
1/2 a teaspoon of salt (omit if you use salted nuts or trail mix)
1/2 cup of organic brown rice syrup
1/4 cup of honey
2 Tablespoons of oil (I used organic extra-virgin coconut oil)
1 cup of almond butter or any other nut butter ( I used organic peanut butter, it was all I had)
First in a bowl combine the oats, trail mix and salt. Mix together.
Meanwhile on the cook top melt the brown rice syrup and honey together. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes, once it has melted.
When the cook top mixture is all melted together pour into the dry mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
larabars in their texture. Thanks PCC for a great recipe!
