These are extra yummy with almond (or peanut) butter slathered on top.
- 2 c ground oats (blend quick oats in food processor)
- 1 c quick oats
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ c pure maple syrup
- 1/3 c fruit sweetener or other thick honey alternative
- ¼ c vanilla or plain non-dairy milk
- 2 tbsp canola oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients into the dry mixtures, stirring until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a lightly oiled 8 x 8 or 8 x 12 baking dish and press down until it’s evenly distributed. Using a sharp knife, cut to mark out the bars before you bake them to make it easier to fully cut and remove the bars once baked. Bake for 19-21 minutes, then remove and let cool in pan. Once cool, use a sharp knife to fully cut the bars, then remove with spatula.
