Berry Breakfast/Snack Bars

0

I love baking with blueberries! They really add a nice moisture to the mix when baking and are full of flavour. Yummo! These are great for a mid morning snack or breakfast on the go! I wouldn’t encourage to have it after lunch due to the highercarb content in oats.

Berry Breakfast/Snack Bars

Ingredients:

Dry-
2.5 Cups of raw oats

1.5 Teaspoons of cinnamon

Sprinkle of sea salt

1.5 Cups of coconut flour

1/4 Cup of natvia

2 Tablespoons of chia seeds

Wet-
2 Tablespoons of 100% peanut butter

2 Teaspoons of vanilla extract

1/2 Cup of organic pure apple sauce

1/4 cup of coconut oil (alternatively you can  use sugar free maple syrup or agave- be careful with the sugar)

Extras-
125g of blueberries

1/2 Cup of almonds – roughly chopped

1/2 Cup of almond milk

1 Cup of water

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 220deg. Line square baking tin with baking paper and spray with coconut oil.

Combine wet and dry ingredients separately. Mix wet ingredients with a fork ensuring all lumps are removed from peanut butter. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the wet to dry and mix thoroughly. Now add the ‘extra’ ingredients.

Add mixture to baking and and spread evenly. Place in oven and allow to cook for 30-40min. The top should start to brown up. After 30min test with a knife/fork and see if the mixture has cooked right through. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Remove from tin by pulling the paper out with the slice. Cut into 12 even squares, glad wrap individually and keep in fridge.

Perfect with a protein shake for breakfast or a mid morning snack!
