Naturally Sweetened Oat Bars

This is my go to morning tea snack for Alessia, or a great option for a ‘breakfast on the run’. Some days she wakes up wanting breakfast immediately and does not have the patience to wait for me to make anything so these Oat Bars are a huge hit in our household! I actually enjoy these myself, I used to spend a lot buying muesli bars which contain a lot of added sugars and preservatives, so this is a great home made and super easy alternative.

Prep Time: 10mins
Cook Time: 45mins

1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
3/4 cup sultanas (you can use any combination of dried fruit such as sultanas, cranberries, or apricots)
1 ripe banana mashed
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons coconut oil (softened)
1 egg (bring to room temperature before mixing with coconut oil so as not to harden the coconut oil)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Mix wet and dry ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined
Pour mixture into a baking tin
Bake for 40-45mins or until firm

Cool, cut and enjoy 🙂

These can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days, or frozen individually.

Please tag me in your recreations, and hashtag #byirina_m as I’d love to see you guys enjoying them as much as we do!
