Raisin Oat Squares
This recipe was developed from my love of bars and squares. I also love things that are sweet so sweet potatoes and raisins are the perfect combo for this healthy and tasty breakfast, or anytime, treat.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 5 sweet potatoes, washed
- 4 cups quick oats
- ¾ cup almond milk
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup ground flaxseed
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp nutmeg
- ½ cup raisins
- ½ cup raw unsalted almonds, chopped
- pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Lightly coat a baking pan with coconut oil.
Use a fork to prick the potatoes and place in oven until tender (about 60 minutes).
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
When cool, remove peels and place in a mixing bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Press into a lightly greased baking pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
Remove form heat and cool.
Cut into squares.
Optional: Top with 1 tsp raw organic honey or a drizzle of maple syrup.
These squares, or bars, keep well in the fridge for a few days or freezer for months. Serve immediately when they are nice and warm or allow to cool and freeze for later. Then pull one out, warm it up and enjoy.
