Easy Lemony, Oat, and Seed Bars

hello Leave a Comment

Oat bars are full of fiber, and these ones have a little lemon-ginger kick. Eat them as is on the go, or have them as a dressed up snack, topped with all-natural nut butters and preserves.


    120 g / 1⁄2 cup Crystal Margarine, melted, plus extra for greasing the pan
    100 g / 2 cups Rolled oats
    50 g / 1 cup Oat flour (pulverize rolled oats in the blender until it resembles flour)
    130 g / 1 cup Sunflower seeds
    35 g / 1⁄4 cup Sesame seeds, toasted
    250 ml / 1 cup Lemon juice
    8 g / 1 tbsp Lemon zest
    4 g / 1 tsp Ground ginger
    Pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F(190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients using a rubber spatula. The mixture should come together and be moist. If it looks a little dry, add another tablespoon of melted Crystal Margarine.

  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and grease it with Crystal Margarine.
  4. Spread the dough out on the prepared baking sheet, being sure to fill the corners.
  5. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centre no longer looks wet.
  6. Remove from the oven. Immediately cut into bars. Do not turn the squares out of the pan until fully cooled.
  7. Once cool, wrap each bar individually and store in a dry, room temperature place.
