1 2/3 cups quick rolled oats (if gluten-free, be sure to use
2/3 cup Barney Butter Almond Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional)
2/3 cup dried fruits
3/4 cup nuts
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup Barney Butter Almond Butter
6 tablespoons coconut oil – melted
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon water
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 9″ x 13″ x 2″ pan with parchment paper.
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl,including dried fruit, nuts and choc chips. In a separate bowl, whisk all wet ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
Bake the bars for 30 to 40 minutes,until they’re brown around the edges. Let pan cool completely. If bars seem crumbly when you try to cut them, let them set in the refrigerator for about an hour before cutting. The bars are best stored in the refrigerator.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you for this great product. My youngest son is allergic to peanuts and this is the only almond butter that I have found that is made in a peanut free facility and is not produced on the same equipment as peanut products.” — Kellie
