Updated: Nov 1, 2019



Gluten Free Almond & Chocolate Snack Bar (a vegan recipe)


Ingredients

(makes about 12 bars)


1⁄2 cup oat flour (certified gluten free)

1⁄4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

1⁄4 tsp sea salt

1⁄2 tsp baking powder

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup almonds coarsely ground*

1⁄4 cup chocolate chips

3 tbs flax meal

1 cup raisins (prunes or dates will work)

1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup water

3 tbs flax meal

1 tbs coconut oil

2 tbs sugar (optional)


*any combination of nuts will do e.g. almonds, pistachios, cashews


Directions


Soak the raisins, dates or prunes in the water until softened, this can also be done overnight. Add

enough water to cover the raisins.


One you are ready to proceed with the recipe, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

Line the bottom of a baking tray (I used 2 x 7' x 10') with parchment paper allowing the paper to

overhang from the sides. Set aside.


In a large bowl, combine until evenly mixed the oat flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Mix in

the rolled oats, nuts and chocolate chips. Set aside.


Add the raisins, flax meal, sugar (if using) and oil to a blender and pulse to form a sticky paste.

Spoon the paste into the dry mix and combine until it all holds together, add a little water if the mixture

is too dry and very crumbly


Spread evenly in the prepared baking tray. Press down firmly and smooth with a pastry roller or a

flat sided object to the desired thickness. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until it is just set.


Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 5 mins. Hold onto the parchment paper

and lift the entire sheet out of the pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into

squares. Store in an airtight container.
