Roasted Almond-Butter Bars Recipe

Thursday, March 15, 2018
 Makes 10 to 12


Apple puree is a great way to sweeten lots of recipes without adding refined sugar. Simply peel and core red apples and chop them into bite-size pieces. Place in a large saucepan with 3/4 inches of water. Simmer for 40 minutes, or until very soft, then blend until smooth. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze in portions.

• 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, plus more for the pan
• 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
• 12 medjool dates, pitted
• 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
• 5 Tbsp. apple puree
• 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 4 Tbsp. hulled hemp seeds
• 3 Tbsp. roasted almond butter
• 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut chips
• 1/2 cup raisins
• Pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 400°. Use some coconut oil to oil an 11- x 7-inch baking pan.

Put the chia seeds in a glass with 1/2 cup of water. Let this sit for 20 minutes until the seeds expand and form a gel.

Put the dates and the 2 Tbsp. coconut oil into a food processor and whiz.

Mix all the other ingredients, including the chia gel, in a bowl, then stir in the dates until everything is evenly blended.

Press into the prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
