Try these banging Apple and Cinnamon breakfast bars.
Good to freeze
Good on the go
Good for batch cooking
Ingredients (Makes 6 portions)
200g rolled oats
75g coconut flour
90g vanilla protein powder
60g ground flaxseed
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
240g pitted medjool dates (roughly 14 dates), chopped
220g unsweetened apple sauce
100g almond butter
75g coconut oil, melted
75ml boiling water
2 apples, cored and grated
Preheat the oven to 180ºC and line a 20cm x 30cm rectangular cake tin with greaseproof paper. Combine the oats, coconut flour, protein powder, ground flaxseed and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
Put the dates, apple sauce, almond butter, coconut oil and boiling water into a liquidiser and blend to a smooth purée. Pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in the raisins and grated apple then spoon into the lined tin. Using the back of a spoon spread everything out in an even layer then bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
Leave to cool in the tin then turn out, remove the paper and cut into rectangles. Wrap each bar individually in cling film and store in an airtight container for up to five days. Any spare bars will freeze well.
These bars freeze really well. Freeze them on a tray lined with greaseproof paper, then once they're frozen transfer to them to a larger freezer bag. That way they won't stick together, and they'll be easier to defrost.
