Blueberry Banana Granola Bars

Blueberry Banana Granola Bars

Ingredients

  1. 2 very ripe bananas
  2. 3 tablespoons of almond butter
  3. 80 ml date syrup
  4. 1 large handful of blueberries
  5. 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  6. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  8. 1 teaspoon hemp protein powder
  9. 200 g gluten-free rolled oats
  10. 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  11. 2 tablespoons of dried coconut
  12. 1 handful of cocoa nibs
  13. 1 handful of pumpkin seeds

Preparation

  • In a food processor, combine the bananas, almond butter, coconut oil, date syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and half the blueberries. Mix until fully combined and you have a thick batter mixture.
  • In a skillet, gently toast the nuts and kernels until lightly golden, 3-5 minutes. Let cool down. When cool, roughly chop the nuts.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, hemp powder, chia seeds, coconut, cacao nibs, remaining blueberries, and toasted nuts/seeds.
  • Stir in the banana paste mixture the oat mixture and mix.
  • Pour the mixture into your parchment-lined baking sheet. Press down with a spatula to ensure the mixture is well packed.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until lightly browned. (These bars are quite soft, if you want them a little crispier bake an additional 10-15 minutes but be careful not to burn them!)
  • Let cool for 10 minutes then flip on a Wire rack and let cool completely.
