chocolate chip cherry oatcake bars

It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe, because I’ve been traveling rather than baking lately. I made these bars before one of my recent trips and they were a great travel snack – tasty, filling, and didn’t fall apart when smooshed in my bag.

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Heat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9″×9″ pan with Earth Balance. In a large bowl, combine the oats through salt. In a small bowl, mix the milk through vanilla together, then pour over the dry ingredients and stir until mixed. Mix in chocolate chips and scrape batter into the prepared pan. Bake for ~30 minutes.
