Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Sugar replacement recipe marginally healthy!

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups spelt or all-purpose flour (180g) (oat flour works; the texture is just a bit gummier)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup rolled oats (20g)
1/2 cup brown sugar or date sugar (90g)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup to 1 cup chocolate chips, depending on how chocolatey you want the bars to be
1/2 cup vegetable or coconut oil (80g)
1/2 cup applesauce (120g)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (9g)
pinch stevia, or 2 tbsp sugar of choice
3 tbsp blackstrap or regular molasses (43g)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
Line the bottom of a baking tray 23×18 x2 cm with parchment paper.

Stir together the salt, flour, oats, sugar, chocolate chips and baking powder in one bowl.

In a second bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients, then pour over the dry, stirring until it forms a batter.

Spoon into the prepared tray.

Bake 25 minutes.

Makes 15-24 squares, depending on how large you cut them.

Substitutions:

Sugar with pureed fruir, honey, maple or agave syrup.

N.B. Vegans use maple, agave or another sugar alternative.

Spelt flour for gluten free flour.

Chocolate chips for dates, cherries or cranberries.
