Roasted Almond-Butter Bars Recipe

 Makes 10 to 12

Ingredients

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
 

 Directions

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.

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 pounds baking pumpkin or winter squash (butternut or acorn), peeled, seeded,
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanut oil, peanut oil, cooking oil, or butter, melted
 

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 3-quart rectangular baking dish with foil. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In prepared 3-quart rectangular baking dish toss pumpkin with oil. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture evenly over pumpkin.

Bake, covered with foil, for 40 minutes. Uncover and stir pumpkin. Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until pumpkin is tender. Makes 10 ( ¾-cup) servings.

Tip: The sugar pumpkin can be replaced with butternut or acorn squash.
