With all the cake and cookies I have been making, I guess I should share a healthy recipe with you all, courtsey of FoodLoveEat.
Vegan Oat Bars (Sugar and Oil free)
Seriously, there is not an unhealthy ingredient to be found.
How are they?
Good, I mean, relatively speaking.
(relative to, let's say, a 5,000 dessert - ha!)
I'd make these again, yep.
Healthy, make-ahead, and tasty.
Way better for you then store-bought with a crazy number of ingredients you can't pronounce.
These ingredients are all "pronounceable."
To make them last longer, I stored mine in the freezer and re-heated when time to dine!
On they're own, they are a little "one-note" to me, but smear some peanut butter on these babies....GREAT!
I enjoyed mine most with Peanut Butter, Tart Apples, & Cinnamon.
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups of mashed overripe bananas
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
-Pre-heat the oven at 350 F.
-Combine mashed banana ground flax seeds, water and salt in a big bowl, stir well.
Add the oats and mix everything. Fold it into a greased shallow baking tray, spread and press well with your fingers.
-Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let it cool for 10 minutes.
-Cut them into desired shape, flip it upside down on a cookie sheet. Put it back into the oven and bake it for another 15 minutes.
-Turn the pieces over and bake for another 5 minutes for both the sides to be nice and brown.
-Let it cool completely and store it in an air tight container for up to a week.
