Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/4 cups quick cooking oats or use large for more texture - gluten-free if necessary
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries

Instructions

  • In a food processor, process almonds, lemon zest, juice and honey until smooth (this can take a few minutes).
  • Add in half of the oats and process again until smooth.
  • Move mixture to a bowl and stir in remaining oats and blueberries. Stir until combined -- you may need to use your hands as they can be pretty sticky!
  • Store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks or freeze for up to 6 months.
  • *To mix things up and add more protein, trying swapping ΒΌ cup of the oats for chia seeds, hemp seeds or ground flax.

Notes

*VEGAN and PALEO: substitute the honey with a vegan liquid sweetener, such as maple syrup or agave nectar. I chose honey because we always have it and it has a neutral flavor, unlike maple syrup.
