Raw Chewy Oatmeal Squares

rawoatmealsquares_thumb

Some raw oatmeal squares that need no baking and only contain a few ingredients that you may very well already have stocked in your kitchen. If you’re not really into the taste of raisins, you may wanna pass on this recipe and try raw chocolate peanut butter date balls, raw peanut butter cookies or cocoa ginger truffles instead.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 cup pitted Dates (I soaked them in some water for a bit in the fridge)
  • 1/4 cup raisins (I used Thompson raisins)
  • A couple of shakes of cinnamon and a small splash of Pure Vanilla Extract

Directions

  1. Blend oats for a few seconds. Add in the dates and blend again. Add in the raissins, cinnamon and vanilla and blend blend blend!
  2. Lay out some plastic wrap and drop the mixture onto it. Fold over the wrap and using either your hands or a rolling pin, evenly flatten out the mixture. Use a knife to  cut it into little individual squares.
  3. Pop into the freezer for as long as you like (I like them better when they’ve been frozen a while) and enjoy with some nice tea or coffee.

    Hi,

    I’m traveling soon and want to take some home-made granola bars with me. But I’m guessing these have to stay in the freezer, else they’ll go bad? Do you have any recipes that I can take in my suitcase with me and nibble at for one month??

    Thanks!!

    Hi Naomi!

    The granola bars don’t need to stay in a freezer, however, they won’t last for a month (at least not the current recipes I have on my site). If you put them in an airtight container with one or two moisture-controlling packets, then that should prolong the time they last to perhaps a week-week and a half. If you have a dehydrator or an oven, you can look up recipes that involve removing most of the moisture, such as chips or crackers, or other crispy things. Once you make them, allow them to fully cool down before putting them in an airtight container, along with some moisture-control packets.

    If you do want to make granola bars that last longer, you would need to make some that are more crispy/cruncher and less soft, so that they contain less water and are less prone to go bad as fast. You could also make some granola in the oven/dehydrator and take that along with you.

    Let me know if you have any more questions and I’d be happy to help or to point you in the direction of some recipes from other sites. Happy travelling!
    Take care x –Clare
