RECIPE

 Pistachio Oat Bars

Ready in 25 minutes

Serves 12 people

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw pistachio (or any nut of your choice, for ex. Pine nuts, cashew, almonds, hazelnuts)
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes

Utensils needed

  • Square baking tray
  • Parchment paper
  • Food processor (or blender)
  • Oven

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. In a food processor with the S blade attached, process the pistachios, oats, and salt for about 30 seconds, until a meal starts to form. Drizzle in the agave syrup and vegetable oil while the motor is still running, and the meal begins to come together into a crumbly, almost-wet dough.
  2. Press the dough evenly into the pan and cover it with coconut flakes and remaining pistachios. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the coconut is nice and golden brown and the dough is cooked through. You want the squares to still be a little soft – don’t overbake these. 
  3. Carefully lift the cooled dough out of the pan by holding two sides of the parchment paper. Cut it into squares. Drizzle a little agave syrup over the top for extra sweetness, if you like. Store the squares in a sealed container for up to a week.
