These are great to make as part of Sunday meal prep and a nutrient packed grab and go breakfast!
1 cup porridge oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp nut butter
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (optional)
1 tbsp cacoa powder (optional)
Handful each of:
Roughly chopped walnuts (or any other nuts of your choice)
Fresh blueberries (optional)
Turn the oven on to 200c and line a small baking dish with baking paper.
Mash the banana in a bowl and mix in all of the dry ingredients.
On a low heat warm up the nut butter and honey in a sauce pan until they are mixed together. Pour this into the banana mixture and mix until all combined.
Spoon the mixture into the baking tray, you will need to press down the mixture with the back of the spatula to compact it.
Cook in the oven on the middle shelf for around 20 minutes or until it starts to brown at the edges.
Once ready, remove from the oven and let it cool before cutting into either 6 squares or 3 bars depending on how much you will want.
They will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week. Eat them plain on the go or have them with a big dollop of nut butter 👌🏽
The great thing about this recipe is that you can add as many or as little ingredients as you like! Use more seeds, less nuts, more fruit, add dried fruit or even some chocolate chips! Give it a go!
