These are little "oat sticks" that not only are healthy and good "keepers," but are very easy for little hands to help make. The dry ingredients are fun to mix by hand; when you add the wet ingredients, there are no raw eggs involved, so little fingers that might get licked later are not a problem. There are also no pieces to roll out or cut--just mash everything in the pan and bake! The recipe can be halved easily.

Recipe from More-with-Less

  • 3 c. whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 c. oat flour (process about 3 cups oats in blender)
  • 1/2 c. soy flour (can use an extra cup whole wheat flour instead)
  • 2 t. salt
  • 2 c. chopped dates (or craisins, raisins, etc.)
  • 3/4 c. coconut
  • 1/2 c. sesame seeds
  • 1/2 c. sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 c. chpd. nuts
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 4 1/2 T. honey
  • 1 1/8 c. milk
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl, making sure dates are coated with flour mixture.
  3. Add wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Divide into two greased jelly roll pans (if using stoneware pans, no need to grease). Pat firmly and evenly into pans. Cut into 1 x 3-inch pieces with pizza cutter. Bake 15-20 minutes or until browned. Remove sticks from around the edges if they brown before center is done.
Makes roughly 100 sticks
