I found these yummy oat breakfast bars on Morning Express! They are perfect for on the go and great for lunch boxes.
You HAVE to try them this weekend!
1 tsp coconut oil, for greasing tray
2½ cups oats
¼ cup raw cacao nibs
100g pistachios, shelled and chopped
50g almonds, chopped
50g pumpkin seeds
50g goji berries
¼ cup coconut flour
½ cup coconut flakes
1½ cups almond milk (or coconut milk), divided
5 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
2 ripe bananas
Preheat oven to 120°C and grease a large baking tray with coconut oil.
Place the oats, cacao nibs, pistachios, almonds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, coconut flour and flakes into a large bowl.
Mix to combine and form a well in the centre.
Place 1 cup almond milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in the dates and stir occasionally until the milk is bubbling and the dates start to break down, forming a syrup like sauce. Pour into the oat mixture and mix to combine.
Mash the ripe bananas and using a blender, blend in the remaining half cup of milk to form a thick liquid.
Mix this into the oat mixture until everything is evenly covered.
Press the mixture into the baking tray and bake for one hour, then turn the temperature up to 150°C and bake for a further 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown, but the mixture is still chewy.
Remove and allow to cool slightly before slicing into bars
