Raisin and Apricot Oatmeal Bars

Raisin and Apricot Oatmeal Bars

I had a jar of raisins just lying on my dining table waiting to be eaten. Their luck was almost running out when I decided to give them a new life!

Made some easiest and healthiest cookies with oats,raisins and some dried apricots.If you don’t have apricots or raisins you can use other dry fruits too.Dried black grapes,dried figs,dried apples will all work here.

These tick multiple boxes!

  • They can be made vegan(use maple syrup instead of honey)
  • They are great for kids and toddlers.Also a great weaning food for babies(substitute date syrup instead of honey)
  • They are healthy and diabetic friendly
