These breakfast bars are a particular favourite in my household - a super easy recipe that can be prepped at the weekend - the ULTIMATE way to start each morning!
Here's how to make them...........
190g rolled oats
65g coconut flour
80g vanilla protein powder
50g ground flaxseed
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
230g pitted medjool dates (roughly 14 dates), chopped
210g unsweetened apple sauce
85g almond butter
65g coconut oil, melted
75ml boiling water
2 apples, cored and grated
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and line a 20cm x 30cm rectangular cake tin with greaseproof paper. Combine the oats, coconut flour, protein powder, ground flaxseed and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
Put the dates, apple sauce, almond butter, coconut oil and boiling water into a liquidiser and blend to a smooth purée. Pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in the raisins and grated apple then spoon into the lined tin. Using the back of a spoon spread everything out in an even layer then bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
Leave to cool in the tin then turn out, remove the paper and cut into rectangles. Wrap each bar individually in clingfilm and store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Any spare bars will freeze well.
