Serves: 24 bars Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 1 cup (250 mL) 1% or 2% milk
  • 2 Tbsp (16 g) ground flaxseed
  • 6 Tbsp (90 mL) pure apple butter
  • 6 Tbsp (90 mL) pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 large Cosmic Crisp apple, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 2½ cups (250 g) regular rolled oats (certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking powder (certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1 cup (150 g) raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch (23 cm) square pan and line it with parchment paper so that the paper comes up the sides of the pan.
  2. Whisk the milk and flaxseed together in a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk in the apple butter, maple syrup, and oil until smooth, then whisk in the Cosmic Crisp grated apple. Stir in the oats, cinnamon, and baking powder until combined. Stir in the raisins.
  3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes, until firm when gently pressed. Cool the pan on a cooling rack completely.
  4. To serve, lift out the parchment paper and portion the square into bars. The bars will keep in an airtight container in the fridge or well wrapped in a lunch bag at room temperature for up to 1 week. They can also be wrapped in plastic and frozen after slicing. A frozen bar packed into a lunch bag will thaw gradually throughout the morning.
