  • 4 cups oats Not quick oats. If you are gluten free be sure the oats say gluten free.
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup almond flour If you are nut free see the Tips section for swaps
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
  • 1 TB cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 small/medium apples chopped (I just pulse them up quick in the food processor.)


  • The night before you want to make the bars, get the oats and lemon juice into a large mixing bowl. Fill it up with water to cover the oats – enough that can you stir it and the oats are submerged. Set the bowl under the light in your oven or a warm spot in your kitchen over night – this soaking process makes the oats easier on your gut to digest.
  • The next morning, get the rest of your ingredients into the mixing bowl with the soaked oats and stir to combine.
  • Spread the batter on to a silpat lined or buttered large jelly roll pan, and cut into the size bars you want.
  • Bake at 375 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool before serving.
