Rose & Cranberry Oat bars with Activated Charcoal icing

OAT BASE

2 cups of Gluten free oats

Half a cup of maple syrup

2 tbsp Beetroot juice for the pink colour OR pink colouring

1 cup of cranberries

Half a cup of sunflower seeds

Half a cup of vegan marshmallows

Pinch of salt

Half a cup of Coconut oil

4 tbsp of rose water

ICING

Icing sugar

vegan cream cheese

3 tbsp of coconut milk

3 tablespoons of DETOX BREW (by mistydayplantpotions) – more for a darker colour

 

Instructions:

  1. Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup, pink colouring and rose water in a frying pan.
  2. While your liquids are melting, blend 1 cup of oats until it becomes flour.
  3. Add the blended oats along with the other cup of whole oats into the frying pan.
  4. Add all other ingredients – salt, sunflower seeds, cranberries and marshmallows.
  5. Stir until the mixture combines together.
  6. Pour into a non stick square tray.
  7. Using a spoon or a spatula, spread the oat mixture evenly until it is flat, making sure to cover the edges.

8. Place into the fridge until you prepare the icing.

9. In a bowl, mix together all the icing ingredients mentioned above, apart from the DETOX BREW powder.

10. Mix until it becomes a thick liquid.

11. Take 3 tbsp of the icing a put into a cup (this is only to get a different shade of grey so that you can decorate the icing, ignore this part if you don’t care about that :)) add a pinch of the DETOX BREW powder and mix until it becomes a light grey.

12. Add the rest of the DETOX BREW powder into your original icing mixture until it becomes dark grey/black – whatever shade you like.

13. Pour the darker icing evenly on top of your oat mixture.

14. If you did decide to make a lighter shade of grey, using a fork or a knife just kind of lightly make whatever patterns you desire 🙂

15. To finish off, top with sun flower seeds, cranberries and marshmallows. I added some coconut and cornflower for a bit more colour.

16. Place into the fridge for 2 hours min.

 

17. Cut into squares or rectangles and serveeeeeee. Or take pictures like I did whilst your family is moaning at you to hurry up so that they can try it.
