Description

No Bake Oatmeal Raisin Granola Bars (V+GF): Soft and chewy granola bars that taste just like an oatmeal raisin cookie. An easy Vegan and Gluten Free recipe made with whole ingredients.


Scale

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups gluten free rolled oats
  • ½ cup homemade gluten free oat flour*
  • ½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 flax eggs (whisk together 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons warm water, let set for 15 mins)
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup natural, unsalted almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Add-in Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional, or other toppings)

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients: flax eggs, coconut oil, nut butter, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to fold the ingredients together until well combined. Fold in raisins and walnuts.
  5. Pour into the prepared baking pan. Spread granola bar mixture into an even layer, pressing down until tightly packed and smooth.
  6. Place baking pan in freezer for 15-20 minutes, or in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  7. Remove from the freezer/refrigerator. Grab the paper liner and lift the bars out of the baking pan. Set onto an even surface and slice into 18 bars. Enjoy!

Notes

– Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. You may also freeze these for up to a month.
– Storing at room temperature: These bars will be slightly soft, but still firm at room temperature. If you’re bringing these as a snack, make sure to store them in a hard container, like a Tupperware.
– *To make homemade oat flour: place rolled oats into a blender. Blend until you get a just slightly grainy flour. Remember: 1 cup of rolled oats does not equal 1 cup of oat flour. You’ll need to blend more rolled oats to create less flour- the oats decrease in volume as you turn it into a flour. It’s easiest to blend up a big batch of oat flour, and just scoop out what’s needed for any recipe.
