2 cups Rolled Oats
¼ cup Almond Butter
1 tbsp Creamed Coconut
2 tbsp Caraway Seeds
⅓ cup Maple Syrup
1A cup Medjool Dates, pits removed
1 cup Raw Almonds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Add the oats to a baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer. Toast them in the oven about 10 minutes, until just starting to turn golden brown. While the oats toast, add the caraway seeds to a dry pan and place over high heat, just until they become fragrant (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat immediately to prevent burning.
In a blender, combine the almond butter, creamed coconut, maple syrup and dates. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, almond butter mixture, caraway seeds and a pinch of salt. Stir with a silicone spatula until it’s well-combined—and be patient! It’s a sticky situation, but you’ll get there with a little perseverance.
Line a shallow rimmed baking dish with saran wrap, leaving an overhang on all sides (so you can lift the bars out easily). Carefully pour the oats and co. into the baking dish and spread into an even layer about ½ inch thick. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for at least 15 minutes—overnight works too. When you’re ready, cut the oats into 2” x 4” bars and store in a ziploc bag, separated by parchment or wax paper.
