I'd been having oaty bars most days as part of my diet...oats, dried fruit, nuts and seed..no naughty sugars or anything. I've recently had to go gluten free and discovered that oats, although naturally gluten free, are contaminated during growing and processing.
Hubby only usually gets one of my bars...hey he can eat anything...but he now has all my frozen batch I'd made for the month - he's a happy camper lol. After being so ill from going glut free I've finally managed to make myself a 'safe' batch. As the Gluten free oats are so expensive, I've had to use half buckwheat flakes.
I don't have a receipe as such - being a 'what's in the cupboard' kind of a cook and make it up as I go along. However, this is my method.
I soak raisin and currents in fruit juice & and the oats separately in enough water to cover for a couple of hours. This avoids the need to add anything to sweeten. I did add a little agave syrup to this batch as the buckwheat flakes aren't to my taste.
When soaked I throw them together with seeds, ground almonds (sometimes chopped nuts). It needs to be quite wet but not sloppy...kind of the mixture for rock cakes. Adjusting is done with dry oats or water, depending on need.
I put it in shallow baking tin, firmly squashing it down, and cook at medium heat for 25 mins.
