Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large banana mashed
  • ½ cup honey
  • 5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ cup ground almonds or ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbls ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger optional: I love ginger!
  • 1 Tbls baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups almond milk

Optional Breakfast Bar Add-ins

  • ¼ cup coconut
  • ¼ cup golden raisins or craisins
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup anything else that sounds good ahem… chocolate chips, anyone?

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and honey together in a bowl.
  • Add in oats, ground almonds, ginger, baking powder, salt and and “optional additions” you choose, mix well with wet ingredients.
  • Pour in almond milk and stir combine. Set on counter for 15 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken slightly.
  • Line a large jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Spread mixture evenly over parchment paper.
  • Bake 1 hour, or until the top is slightly golden and it is “bouncy” to the touch. (Like a heavy quickbread.)
  • Cool and cut into 18 bars.
  • To store, wrap each bar individually in plastic wrap and then freeze them in gallon freezer bags.

Notes

I like to wrap these individually and freeze them in gallon-sized Ziploc bags, then take out however many I need the night before. They’re great cold, but for a warm breakfast on the go, ten seconds in the microwave makes them even better.
NOTE: Nutritional analysis DOES NOT INCLUDE optional add-ins.
