Clean Oat & Peanut Butter Bake Bar

Two of my nearest and dearest, Anna & Hannah, are keen oat / quinoa / breakfast-bar bake queens, and on Sunday I fancied making a batch myself for snacking on throughout the week, or as a quick-fix breakfast to take to work with me.

They turned out preetty d-lish, especially for a first go when I wasn't paying too much attention to quantities...

I used;

  • 2 x handful cashew nuts
  • 1 x handful pitted dates
  • 2 x handful raisins 
  • 2 x tablespoons peanut butter (I use Meridian 100%) 
  • 50g oats (or there abouts...)
  • 1 banana (mashed)
  • 2 x tea spoons raw coconut oil (I use Biona) 
  • 2 x eggs 
1. Chop up your cashew nuts, dates and raisins, as finely as you can be bothered to (you could use a blender but I wanted mine quite chunky). 

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped cashew, dates and raisins with coconut oil and 'massage' with your hands. 

3. Then add your eggs, oats, PB and mashed banana.

4. Spread the mixture into a baking tin and put in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes until crisp and golden brown.

It tasted really nice warm (I couldn't wait until it had cooled down), but it was also lush with a cup of tea in work this afternoon. When you get a mouthful of unexpected peanut butter it's literally like heaven...

Now the rest of them are just waiting for me in the fridge.. it's torture!

What's your favourite oat bake?
