Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed, ground
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon water
  • 1 3/4 cup oats, dry
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2/3 cup raisins, seedless
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup almond butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 3 quart baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Combine ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl to make a flaxseed "egg." Allow to sit for 10 minutes to congeal.
  • Pulse oats and nuts in a food processor until semi-finely chopped but not powdery.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine pulsed oats and nuts, raisins, grated carrot, coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat honey and almond butter for 20 seconds, or until easy to stir together.
  • Add the honey/almond butter mixture and flaxseed egg to the medium bowl with oat mixture. Stir until fully mixed.
  • Pour mixture into lined baking dish and spread out until it is even and about 1/2 inch thick (mixture likely will not cover the entire length of the baking dish).
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until edges slightly brown.
  • Remove from the over and allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting bars. Let cool completely before removing and eating bars.
