These bars are quick and easy to make…they are a perfect mid-day snack dipped into Greek yogurt or an after dinner dessert paired with organic soy ice cream.

I love experimenting in my kitchen-I devised this recipe one afternoon when searching through my cabinets for a snack.  When I finally realized I had all of the ingredients needed to make a bar- I simply played around and came up with a masterpiece.  No baking required is a plus, especially in the warm weather…simply pop these bars into the fridge and they’ll be ready in no time.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 4 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cherries
  • A dash of Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Slivered Almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. Cashew Butter (or any nut butter of choice)
  • Zest of 1 Orange

Directions

  • Combine all above ingredients and mix well until it forms a sticky, firm consistency
  • Mold mixture in a square 9 x9 pan
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours
  • Cut into bar- like shapes and enjoy!

To store these bars, simply wrap each bar individually in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.  These will keep in the refrigerator for about 1 week.  For longer storage, you can freeze these bars for up to 3 months.

I love making my own bars–it’s so much fun to experiment in the kitchen with healthy ingredients such as seeds, nuts, dried fruits, sweeteners (such as stevia, agave and honey) and a whole grain base (oats, bran, cereal, rice, bulgar, quinoa, etc.)  My list could go on forever–it’s easy to create your very own custom bar…just take a look at what you have in your cabinets and fridge and experiment with new ingredients each time!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Just tried this recipe and I think I’m going to love it! It’s in the fridge now for two hours then I get to taste it. Of course I licked the spoon so I sorta know how it’s going to turn out. Thanks for sharing!
