The Song of Style Raw Bar Recipe


Photo by @runwayonthego
A lot of you guys have asked for a complete ingredients list and directions to make my raw bars. Well… ask and you shall receive. Below is everything you will need to make my raw bars. I eat these yummy bars all the time because, well, I’m addicted. They’re great to travel with (I took them to Paris Fashion Week and with me in Utah right now.), eat as a snack at the office, or even just as an, “on the go,” snack. Be sure to tag #sosrawbars when you make them so that I can see. And thank you to @sarahbakerhansen for the detailed recipe for the SOS Raw Bars.Photo by @ihavethisthingformoments

1 cup Quick Oats
4 tbsp Chia Seeds
1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
12 Dates, Seeded and Chopped
Unsweetened Coconut Flakes for Topping

1) Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
2) Mix the oats, chia seeds and coconut oil together in a bowl, evenly coating the granola mixture with the oil. Spread on the parchment paper.
3) Bake for 15 minutes, stir, and then bake for 15 minutes more, or until golden brown.
4) Let cool for five to ten minutes.
5) To create the bars, mix the warm granola with the chopped dates in a large bowl and stir with a large wooden spoon, cutting the mixture together until it is completely combined.
6) Line a glass dish with parchment paper, and evenly press the date and granola mix into the prepared dish. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top.
7) Cover the top with plastic wrap, and freeze the bars for two to three hours.
8) Slice and serve.
9) To store, wrap the bars in parchment paper and store in the refrigerator

    I noticed in your original video you mentioned that you got this recipe from your friend. Shouldn’t you give her credit instead of just writing in your YT video and blog posts “My Raw Bar Recipe” and “The Song of Style Raw Bar Recipe” (emphasis on the “my” and “the”). I feel like the title is misleading even though you did give her credit in the description box of one of the videos, but many people tend not to read them. Of course, it’s between you and your friend! Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi – noticed that your YouTube video and blog instructors aren’t the same… which one is best? I just tried the blog on and the bars didn’t mold and crumbled ☹️. But I noticed the blog said to chop the dates vs the video didn’t? This recipe is missing some steps as well.

    I tried this recipe yesterday. It turned out great!! Everyone loves them! I did tweak some things after reading the recipe and watching the video. The recipe here isn’t written so well. But I like the raw bars and will be making them again and again.

    Hi Aimee!!
    Just saw your stories about the grain free raw bar. I looked at the you tube video and saw that the oats were still in the recipe….which is still considered a grain. Unless I’m blind, I didn’t see any other recipe. Thanks!

    Hey Aime! Thanks for the recipe. What about the walnuts and sunflower seeds? You don’t mention them in the guidelines.

    Normally most of the bars are baked, this one she only bakes the oats to make the granola, but the bar itself doesn’t need to go to the oven to be eaten.

    I’ve tried making these bars twice, both have ended up too dry and crumbly :( after reading thru the comments I think it’s because I didn’t add enough dates to bind the bar together.
    My advice for people who only bought 12 dates (like myself), melt 1/3 c almond butter + 2 tbsp honey to make the bars stick!
    Bars still end up tasting very yummy!

      If you wan’t to, you can add some water to the dates and put half of them into the processor to make a thick paste! :)

    This is the most poorly written recipe I have ever seen- no where does it say where you add the sunflower seeds. Walnuts, salt and pepper are in the photos but not in the recipe. I actually had to look at other websites to find the correct recipe… Ridiculous.

    Love the taste of salt pepper with the sweetness of dates, I also sprinkle some Navitas Organic Cacao Nibs to add extra magnesium. Love it!!

  10. I, along with many others, have been dying to try this recipe. I did one batch yesterday and have a few tips!

    1. Get raw sunflower seeds so when it bake, they doesn’t become burnt. OR just add regular sunflower seeds after cooked granola cools, at the same time as dates.

    2. If you’re not baking with raw sunflower seeds I suggest baking granola for about 10 mins, stirring and then again for 5.

    3. The dates don’t stay in their chopped form. You must “smoosh” them so they hold the granola together. They kind of become this thick raw honey like consistency. If they stay “chopped” that’s why the granola isn’t holding together.

    The sunflower seeds, the walnuts and the salt and pepper are missing in the instructions! My granola is baking now (oats+chia seeds) and I’m sure I should have add these missing ingredients to it!!!

  12. I’ve already made 2 batch of raw bars and finished them in a week. I mean, i know I shouldn’t eat all in such a short period of time, but AIMEE YOUR RAW BAR MAKES MY DAY EVERYDAY – no joke. Thanks so much for creating this. (I’ve also added quinoa and flex seed for more crunchiness and IMLOVINGIT)

  13. OMG YES! I’m so glad you uploaded this. Was waiting im for it cause I’ve tried several dates and mine would always crumble like the most of the others. Can’t wait to try out and check again. Thank you aimeeeeee♥️

  14. Hi! My third time trying this recipe and I cannot seem to keep my bars together. They fall and crumble apart the moment I start cutting them after freezing. Am I the only one having this issue??? Help! I love the taste

    • Alicia says on March 16, 2018

      Your mixture is obviously too dry or you didn’t press your mixture tight enough. Also make sure the dates aren’t chopped too finely. Hope this helps!

    • Try using your hands to mix the dates and granola. You have to break down the dates completely—it’s the paste that holds everything together. If the granola is loose when you transfer to your container then it will be loose when you cut. Hope that helps! I had to eat my first batch with a spoo, too

      I found a huge difference between medjool dates and deglet dates . Medjool is bigger and stickier!

  16. Yes Aimee, finally your recipe by measurements. I was following your recipe on youtube and did them by your ratios already three times. They turned out really good. My mum is now addicted as well! . THANK YOU! I’m making them for work next week and I’m gonna surprise my Swedish colleagues. Excited! Keep on inspiring us. Love your humbleness.

    Hugs to you
