Preparation

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine cashew butter and brown rice syrup.
  3. Once evenly mixed, add cashew butter mix to oat mixture, stirring thoroughly to combine. It should form a semi-gooey, cookie batter like consistency. If it's too crumbly, add a little water, 1 teaspoon at a time.
  4.  Line a baking sheet with low edges with parchment. Press your batter into it and smooth out to fill the sheet. It should be a uniform thickness all the way across.
  5. Transfer to the fridge for about half an hour to let your batter set, then cut it into bars and transfer to a sealed container.

Notes

Store in the fridge.
