- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or use coconut oil to make these vegan
- 2 cups rolled oats
- ½ cup ground flaxseed
- ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅓ cup Astor Apiaries New York City raw honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or use regular brown sugar
- ½ cup unsalted peanuts or substitute other seed/nut, see ideas below
- ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips or substitute dried fruit, see ideas below
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter and line a 9 x 9 inch pan with parchment paper or generously butter the pan.
- In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add honey and sugar and stir over low heat for another two to three minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Place the oats in a bowl with the flaxseed, salt and cinnamon and stir to combine. Pour over the honey / butter mixture and stir until the oats are thoroughly coated. Add in your mix-ins, then press into the prepared pan (if using chocolate chips, let the mixture cool for a few minutes before adding them so they don’t melt). Bake for 18-20 minutes, then cool completely before cutting into bars. Wrapped well, the bars will last 2-3 weeks.
