Healthy Oat & Apple Breakfast Bars

These oat based snack bars are both healthy and taste incredible, and they’re super simple to make as well.

The bars are a great source of soluble fibre (which optimises cholesterol levels) thanks to the wholegrain oats and dried fruit, as well as healthy fats from the seeds. Oats, fruit and seeds release their energy slowly, meaning that these bars help to keep you fuller and more energised for longer!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups (150g) oats*
  • 1/4 cup (45g) dried fruit e.g. chopped apricots
  • 1/4 cup (40g) seeds/chopped nuts – optional
  • 2 apples – chopped (or 2 mashed bananas)
  • 1 tbsp oil/butter – I used melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey/agave nectar/maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon or ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 190 degrees C
  2. Add the chopped apples to a food processor & pulse until they are finely chopped and turned ‘mushy’
  3. Mix together the oil, honey & vanilla in a pan over a medium heat before adding the diced apples & mixing well
  4. Mix together the oats, dried fruit, seeds/nuts, salt & cinnamon in a separate bowl before adding to them the apple, oil, honey & vanilla mix
  5. Press the mixture into a baking tin lined with baking paper & bake for 15-20 minutes until golden
  6. Allow to cool before cutting into 9 bars & enjoy! I wrapped my bars in cling film and kept them in the fridge or freezer until I wanted them!

Notes

*For a higher protein snack bar swap 1/2 a cup of the oats for protein powder!
