Easy Blueberry Oat Bars (Gluten-Free,Vegan)
5 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp raw honey / date syrup / pure maple syrup
3 tbsp nut butter
200g / 2 cups rolled oats
0.75 cup wild blueberries
You can add in raisins or cranberries (sprinkle a handful into the mixture)
DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 340 F. Line a baking dish with parchment paper. 8in x 8in dish works great
2. Melt the coconut oil, honey and nut butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Once melted and combined, stir in the oats and continue to mix until all the oats have been coated. Fold in the blueberries. If you are adding raisins or cranberries you can do so - just a sprinkle (roughly 1/4 cup or less)
3. Transfer the mixture into the baking dish and firmly with the back of a spoon press down and into the sides to make it as compact as possible. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the sides are just beginning to brown.
4. Leave to cool in the dish and then transfer to the fridge for at least 1 hour (you can also do overnight if that's easiest) so the bars don't crumble apart.
5. Once the mixture has completely cooled cut into eight bars and enjoy!
