If you like baked oatmeal, you will like these snack bars. You can make them with your choice of fruit and berries, really the possibilities are endless! Just work with whatever you have on hand - that's what I did. I used red quinoa, hence the specks you see. You could use dried cranberries instead of raisins or in addition to them. I would love to experiment even more with this and I can see myself adding goji berries, chia seeds, or dark chocolate chips. At home these are good to store for 2-3 days, after that they will taste a little off. To extend their life you can always dehydrate them longer on your lowest oven setting.
Prep Time: 15 minutes (+ overnight soak)
Bake Time: 30 minutes
4. Pour out the moist mixture onto parchment paper and shape as needed.
5. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes, optionally dehydrate longer on lowest oven setting is you want the bars less moist (they would last longer for longer trips).
6. Let cool and pack them to go or snack at home! Our favorite ways to bring snacks with us are to use either a unbleached paper snack bags, Think Baby containers, or reusable snack bags.
