Breakfast has to be quick on some (most?) days, so these bars are perfect for those days when you need to grab something on the go. They provide you with a healthy mix of wholesome ingredients, and have a nice chew to them. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking, but my blueberries were quite sweet, so a little maple syrup was all I needed for the perfect breakfast sweetness.

Serves

Cooking Time

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spelt pastry flour
  • 1 cup fine oats (or 3-grain flakes mixture: rye, oat and spelt)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pecan pieces
  • ⅔ cup rice milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup blueberries (or more)*

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper.**
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flower, oats, salt, chia seeds and pecan pieces.
  3. Add the maple syrup, half of the milk, and stir.
  4. Slowly add the rest of the milk until a spreadable dough forms and carefully incorporate the blueberries.
  5. Pour into the baking pan, spread evenly, and bake for about 30 minutes.
  6. Immediately cut them after taking them out (careful not to burn yourself!), as they will harden a bit when cooling down.

Notes

*The blueberries are easier to work with when they are frozen! **You could also grease the pan with some coconut oil, but the paper makes removing the bars easier.
