Apple Harvest Breakfast Bars
Apples for breakfast - in these bars your kids might think it's dessert, but you'll know it's a nourishing meal.
Servings: 16 bars
- 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.
