Oat & Raisin ‘No Bake’ Brownies




1 cup nut butter or seed butter

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup coconut oil

1.5 cup dry rolled oats

3 tsp raisins

50 g of 70% dark chocolate bar or 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Combine the nut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil and raisins in a pot and melt on a low-medium heat, stirring as it melts. This should take 2-3 minutes
  2. Add chocolate and allow to melt for about 30 seconds. Turn the fire off and stir in the oats
  3. Pour into a baking dish lined with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, just grease the dish with coconut oil. It’ll make the brownies a little more difficult to remove from the dish, but a little patience and power, and you will do it
  4. Freeze for 1 hour. Once set, remove and cut into squares. Store in the fridge
  5. Voila!

I like this recipe because it’s a sweet treat made with natural sugars, no flours, no baking (which I tend to avoid because it’s so precise) and it reminds me of my favorite cookie – oatmeal and raisin. The ingredients make up a great toddler snack loaded with essential fats, protein and slow releasing carbohydrates. The dark chocolate, as we all know and justify daily, is not only an antioxidant, but also contains nutrients that are essential to our energy cycle as well as our body’s natural relaxation ability – it even contains a decent amount of fibre. It’s one of the healthiest and tastiest treats I’ve tasted in a long time – nutrient dense and no blood sugar spike. Great for the whole family, and definitely toddler approved!
