Here’s a creative way to get a few of your simanim in while staying on plan this Rosh Hashanah…
1 cup of oats
1 cup of pitted dates
½ cup dried apples, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
- Soak the dates in room temperature water for at least 10 minutes, ideally longer.
- Line a baking tray with some baking parchment that is twice it’s length so that half rolls off one end.
- Put your oats and other ingredients in a large bowl.
- Drain and wash the dates and put in a food processor. Blend until they have turned into a sticky paste. This can take up to 10 minutes and you should stop to scrape the mix off the sides and also give the blades a little rest. Persevere here – it will blend! If it needs a little help add 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil.
- Once blended, add to the oat mix. Use a spoon and a bit of elbow grease to mix all the ingredients together. Add the honey to help it blend.
- Once loosely blended, turn it out onto the baking tray and flatten slightly. Fold the other half of the parchment over the mixture and flatten with your hands. Use a rolling pin to flatten it out completely into a square or rectangle, using your hands to mold and straighten the edges. Roll out until it’s about 1/2 an inch thick.
- Put in the fridge for at least two hours to allow to set. Once set, use a knife to cut into bars – no baking needed!
Makes 8 bars. Count each bar as a snack. Enjoy!
