  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, blueberries, or cherries


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed. Let sit at least five minutes until some liquid is absorbed. Fold in the blackberries being careful not to break them up too much.

  • Remove from the pan. Set on a cooling rack. Once cool, slice into 8 bars.

Eat within a few days. Or freeze for 3 months or more really.

Recipe substitutions

This recipe is forgiving. Use what's in your pantry to make it work.
Nuts and seeds: This recipe works with chopped walnuts or pecans. Swap in sunflower or pumpkin seeds to keep the recipe nut-free.
Fruit: Swap equal amounts of fresh or frozen blueberries or blackberries, dried cherries, or leftover fresh homemade jam like peach or strawberry.
Milk: To keep the recipe vegan, use a non-dairy milk. Use shaken canned coconut milk, or cashew, almond, or hemp milk, or dairy milk equally in this recipe.
Sweetener: Maple syrup adds a deep rich flavor but can be swapped for a 1/4 cup brown sugar.
