No-Bake Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter Oat Bars
Prep time 10 mins; Total time 10 mins; Makes 12 bars
1½ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup almond butter
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup brown rice syrup (I have substituted both pure maple syrup and honey and they worked)
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup raisins (I have also used half and half mini chocolate chips and carob chips)
Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Pulse oats in a food processor a few times to make a course flour and set aside.
In a small saucepan over low heat add almond butter, coconut oil, brown rice syrup, sea salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir until melted and well combined. Remove from heat and transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in oats and raisins.
Press mixture into the lined baking pan. Use fingers to pack dough down well. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours to set. (or place in freezer to speed up the process!)
Remove from parchment paper and cut into 12 bars.
Store in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
