Busy? On the go with errands and appointments? Want something that is portable and yet oh-so-satisfying? And guess what? It is healthy, too! Oats are wonderful for reducing our cholesterol levels – a heart smart choice!
Gather and Prep: Pre-heat oven at 400F and in a large mixing bowl combine thoroughly with a spatula:
- 2 cups large flake rolled oats
- 1 and 1/3 cups of oat flour
- 2 tSp of cinnamon
- ¾ cup of maple syrup
- ¾ cup dried blueberries
Now transfer moist and fully combined mixture into a large (10-12”) non-stick spring loaded round pan. Spread evenly and flatten down until the surface is even.
Bake at 400F for approximately for 18-20 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch. Remove from pan, leaving the round pan under the bar intact. Thoroughly cook on a wire rack before cutting into wedges. Store in a dry container to preserve its crunch.
Enjoy – they never last long!
