Fruit and Nut Bars

Makes 8 bars


Missing breakfast because you are in a rush is a common issue for lots of people. Which is why all of the cereal bars you find at the supermarket are such big sellers. It's an easy grab on the go bite that will fuel you for a short period of time. The problem is of course that the cereal bars are not much better for you than a candy bar. What you might have thought was a healthy choice is actually full of sugar, syrups and all sorts of baddies for your health. My breakfast bars are protein rich, and full of natural goodness.


Make a batch of these at the weekend and enjoy a Healthylicious bite on the go.


Method:


  1. Line a square baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mix together the eggs, maple syrup, oil, milk and vanilla.
  3. Add the almond flour, baking powder, coconut, oats and cinnamon and whisk it all together.
  4. Add most of the fruit and nuts, but save some to sprinkle on top.
  5. Pour the runny batter into the prepared tray.
  6. Sprinkle with your reserved toppings.
  7. Carefully put your tray into your hot oven and bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool completely.
  9. Remove the parchment paper.
  10. Cut into 8 slices and store them in an airtight container in your fridge for a week.


You will need:


1 cup almond flour

1 ¼ cup of almond milk

½ cup of your favourite dried fruits. I used cranberries and raisins

½ cup of your favourite nuts and seeds. I used walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds

¼ cup of maple syrup

¼ cup of shredded coconut

¼ cup of oats (not instant)

3 beaten eggs

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of baking powder
