Gluten Free, Citrus infused, Nutty oat bars of yumminess that leave you feeling right with the world.
Heat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
I used a s 9 X 15 inch pan. If your baking pan is not non stick then line with parchment or lightly oil.
Chop your nuts and fruit.
Place your oats, nuts, citrus zest and dried fruit in a large bowl.
In your blender blend the rest of your ingredients flax through dates. Blend until you have a smooth thick liquid and then pour over the oats and nuts. Massage through and allow to sit five minutes.
Press the mixture into your baking pan, really getting into the corners. I place a sheet of parchment or plastic wrap over the top and press down on that with a short rolling pin or can of beans so the whole thing is really smooth and compressed. This helps the bars stick together.
Bake for one hour in the middle rack. Remove form the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing or they will crumble. Alternately you can break it into chunks and use as granola.
