Vegan Banana Oat Energy Bars
These tasty energy bars make a toothsome snack at any time of day - perfect with a mug of tea. They also keep really well so make a big batch at the weekend and store them in an airtight container so they're on hand throughout the week for whenever you need a little something sweet!
2 large, ripe bananas, mashed | 2 cups oats | 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk | 1/4 cup apple sauce | 2 tbsp oil | 1 tsp vanilla extract | 2 tbsp agave | pinch salt | 5 large dates, chopped.
(Try also adding vegan dark choc or perhaps even some walnuts too!)
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Pour the mixture into a greased and floured square baking pan.
3. Bake for around 30 mins or until golden brown. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into bars and removing from tin.
