Little secret about my chocolate chip "z bars"...I never tasted them! My sister was the taste tester and let me tell you...she is a tough critic! She and I are very opposite in our eating habits and it is a running joke in our family that she should be a food critic because she is picky about what she eats! So when she tasted my bars and told me she really liked them, I was surprised, but when she ate them voluntarily throughout the week and took some home with her I was floored! I even got my sister, who has a love of donuts by the way, to eat healthy!!!
I figured I could absolutely not stop there and picked another flavor Z bar to recreate: Iced oatmeal cookie! I added in raisins, but other than that I think they're pretty similar! Try them out and let me know what you think!
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a blender pulse 1 cup of the gluten free oats into a flour like consistency. In a mixing bowl combine the oat flour, the 1/4 cup whole oats, cinnamon, baking soda, flax, and salt. In a food processor pulse 1/2 cup raisins to a paste like consistency, add in to your oat mixture. Lastly add in the vanilla and agave. Form into bars (about 3 inches long and 1 inch wide) and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the tops begin to brown. Drizzle with melted white chocolate if you like. Enjoy!
Favorite bar? What other bars would you like to see made G Free, Paleo, or Healthier???? I'm open to suggestions!
