Banana, Pumpkin Seed & Almond Granola Bars: Vegan and Sugar Free

IMG_0916

Ingredients:

Makes 8 large bars

– 2 over ripe banans

– 1 cup of puffed rice (make sure it’s brown rice)

– 1 cup of oats

– 1 cup of raisins

– 2/3 of a cup of almonds

– 1/2 a cup of flaxseeds

– 1/2 a cup of pumpkin seeds

– 1/4 of a cup of sunflower seeds (Optional)

– 3 tablespoons of date syrup

– 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Method:

Start by preheating the oven to 190C. Then pour all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl followed by the date syrup. Mix well before placing it all into a suitable baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake for about twenty fie minutes – halfway through remove the tray and score the bars into your desired size using a knife. Once the top of the bake has started to brown remove it and set aside to cool.

I’m sure if you’re half as impatient as I am this will be a challenge, but it’s really important for allowing the bars to set! For this cooling process I find it’s best to leave the bars in the baking tray for about five minutes, then pick up the baking paper and leave that on the side with the bars still on to finish the cooling the process. Then enjoy!
