Servings: 18-20 bars
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (or gluten-free oats)
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped dates
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan.
Mix all ingredients in one bowl, beginning with the dry ingredients and ending with the wet ingredients. Place all or part of the mixture (depending on the desired texture) in the food processor and pulse a few times until the ingredients are chopped well and sticking together.
Press the mixture into the prepared pan with a wet spatula. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Let cool completely before slicing. Store in an airtight container in the fridge (or freeze).
