Prep Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 6 servings


  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/4 cup nut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Gaia Herbs Maca Powder


  1. Place a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add all ingredients, and stir well to combine.
  2. Cook, stirring often, until the mixture is warmed through and thoroughly combined.
  3. Line a loaf pan with parchment. Transfer the oats mixture to the loaf pan, and pat down firmly with a wet spatula.
  4. Allow to cool completely or refrigerate for 2 hours before slicing.

Tip: We used almond butter, pecans and dried cranberries, but you can swap in any nuts, dried fruit and nut butter you prefer. You can also double the amount of Maca Powder to yield 1 serving per bar.
