The combination of oats, nuts, and seeds mean these bars from the So Vegan in 5 cookbook provide you with slow releasing energy, keeping you fuller for longer.
What you need:
3 ripe bananas, peeled
⅔ cup mixed nuts and seeds, roughly chopped
2½ cups old-fashioned oats
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
What you do:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line an 8 x 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
- Into a mixing bowl, add bananas and mash until runny and no lumps remain. Add remaining ingredients to bowl and mix until combined.
- Into prepared baking pan, pour mixture. Use the back of a spoon to level out mixture and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove from oven and leave to cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove bars from pan by pulling out parchment paper, and transferring to a wire rack. Leave to cool completely before slicing into 9 squares.
