Oat bars, a healthy snack option
Oat is a good source of protein and fiber. Thinking about some healthy snack ideas, the first option that came to me, was an oat bar.
We can buy protein bars or granola bars to have our snacks, but if you consider making homemade oat bars, here you can find how to make them.
As part of your nutritional plan, this healthy snack recipe can be a good option to reach your weight goals.
- 1/2 cup soy milk (or almond, or rice milk).
- 2 eggs.
- 6 spoons honey.
- 1 tea spoon coconut extract.
- 2 1/2 cups whole grain oat.
- 1 tea spoon cinamon.
- 2 tea spoons brown sugar.
- 1 tea spoon salt.
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries.
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (or any seeds, such as sunflower seeds).
- 1 cup blueberries (or any fruit you prefer, apple or banana. They should be cutted in very small pieces).
- 2 bowls.
- Tray. (I use a baking tray 28 x 17.8 x 3.7, but you can use other similar size).
- Baking paper.
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, and mix them well.
- Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl, and mix them well.
- Combine all the ingredients together, and mix them until combine them well.
- Let the mix to rest during 20 mins, then the oats will absorb some moisture from the mix.
- Preheat the oven at 180C.
- Place some baking paper on the tray and put the mix on the tray, spreading the mix through the tray uniformly. Press the oats a little bit to make sure they are inside the moisture.
- Bake it during 35 mins, then turn off the oven and let the tray inside the oven to chill.
- When the tray is at room temperature, take the baked oat out and place it on a cutting board.
- Cut into uniform pieces, and they will be ready for storage or eat.
- I storage some oat bars inside snack bags into the freezer to eat later. Also, I placed others in a clean container to eat during the week.
- If you freeze some, before consuming them you should thaw them in the fridge the nigh before.
