Lemon Oat Bars

These bars are a great snack that isn’t too sweet!

Bars:

  • 2 TB butter
  • 2 TB almond butter
  • 4 TB coconut sugar
  • 1 TB maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used coconut milk this time)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cassava
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup flax seeds

Glaze:

  • 2 TB butter
  • 1 TB honey
  • 1 TB + 2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • Small pinch sea salt

Set the oven to 325 degrees. Grease an 8×8 baking dish or pull out silicone molds.

Bars:

Brown the butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Once browned, add to a bowl with the almond butter. Whisk to combine. Add the coconut sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and lemon. Whisk to combine. Allow to come to room temperature. Whisk in the egg. Whisk in the milk in two additions.

To make oat flour, grind oats in a blender or food processor. Whisk the dry ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in two additions, folding with a spatula to combine.

Pour the batter into the greased baking dish and bake 22 minutes, or until the center is set.

Glaze:
