Healthy, delicious and easy to make breakfast bars that take less than 20 minutes to make!

Homemade breakfast bars are nutritious, healthy and make for perfect snacks  for throughout the day.  These breakfast bars are made using only natural sugars and fruits and coupled with the sweetness of the bananas, sultanas and raisins makes them chewy and delicious to taste.

These are easy to make and can be made in batches and then either kept in the fridge or freezer.  If you’re freezing them, get them out the evening before so they have chance to thaw through before the following morning.

These are handy to take to work or grab when you’re on the school run and they’re ideal to snack on throughout the day too.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 very ripe bananas

200 g rolled oats

100ml almond or soya milk

2 table spoons of cashew or olive oil butter

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon vanilla powder

Small handful of raisins

Small handful of sultanas

Small handful of cashew nuts

Coconut oil for the dish

Makes 8-10 (dependant on size of dish)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 oc (fan 160 oc)

Weigh all the ingredients and then pour into one bowl, leaving the coconut oil to grease the dish only.

Cut up the raisins and sultanas into small pieces and chop the cashew nuts into small pieces or put them into a small bag and crush them.

Mash the bananas with a fork until smooth and place in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and give this a good stir.

Oil a baking tin or dish with the coconut oil and then spoon in the mixture.

Bake for 12 minutes, then leave to cool before taking out of the dish and then cut into bars or squares (whichever you prefer).

Top tip: Always use very ripe bananas as this is key for the sweetness and consistency.
