Surabhi’s mom’s yummy oat squares

Mrs. Shah is known for her prowess in the kitchen, and this is one of the recipes she shared with me that I’ve road-tested. You can customize these oat sqaures by adding whatever you want (chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc.). I added mini chocolate chips and pine nuts to mine. But I recommend adding regular-size chocolate chips–the minis were ungratifyingly small.

BTW, if you don’t like the taste of molasses you can substitute honey, but I guess that would technically make them non-vegan.


Mrs. Shah’s oat squares:

2 teas baking powder

4 cups quick-cook rolled oats

1/2 cup (or slightly more) molasses or honey

1/2 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup vegetable oil

1 teas cinammon

1 teas ground ginger

optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips/nuts/seeds/dried fruit

Mix all ingredients together by hand right in the baking pan (saves on dishwashing!). Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until it starts bubbling. Let cool completely before cutting.

    If you wanted to keep them vegan, but don’t like molasses..nectar is always an option..
    These sound so good, and since they are oat-y one could pretend their actually healthy. I suppose they are healthier than other alternatives – ok, that’s a good enough rationale for me!
