 Recipe Information  
Category: Breakfast
Recipe Created By: Devyani



 

 Ingredients  
2 cups uncooked rolled oats
1 1/2 cups oat flour
1 cup (packed) currants, raisins, or other dried fruit
1/4 cup white or brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sesame seeds or small nut Pieces (optional)
1 cup apple juice


 Directions  
If fruit pieces are hard, set them in a bit of hot water to moisten.

Preheat oven to 375 °F. Grease a 9x13" pan, or two 8x8" pans. Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. The mixture should be moist enough to form a ball, without extra liquid.

Put mixture in prepared pan(s) and spread evenly. Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and cut into squares while still hot. Wait until the bars cool before trying to remove them from the pan.

Variations:

Replace apple juice with either:

- orange juice

- a mixture of 1/4 cup molasses and 3/4 cup water

- 1/4 cup molasses, 2 Tbsp dark rum or flavoring, and enough water to make one cup.


If you want to increase the molasses a bit, you can omit the sugar in the recipe.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
