Yummy baked berry oatmeal bars made with vegan protein for a tasty breakfast or snack that’s easy to make and tastes like vanilla cake!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized (120 g) ripe banana 
  • 1.5 cups (325 mL) unsweetened plant-based milk such as cashew or almond
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, optional
  • 2 cups (200 g) rolled or large flake oats
  • 2 servings (60 g) vanilla pea protein-based protein powder (Vega, NuZest, Orgain, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp (7 g) ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cinnamon, optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt, optional
  • 1.5 cups (160 g) fresh or frozen mixed berries or berry of choice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Add the banana to a 7-8 inch square baking dish and mash with a fork until it resembles a paste.
  3. Add the milk and vanilla and stir to combine.
  4. Add everything else, except for the berries and stir into a thick, uniform batter.
  5. Sprinkle the berries evenly over the top of the oatmeal. Gently press them in a bit with a spoon or your finger.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing into bars.
  8. Enjoy warm with your favourite toppings or store for a ready-to-go breakfast or snack.

Notes

    Serving Size: I cut these into 8 bars but if you’d like them a little bigger, 6 larger bars works too!

    Toppings: Serve with a drizzle of your favourite nut butter, coconut yogurt, banana, walnuts or any other topping you desire.

    Texture: Due to the protein powder, the bars have somewhat of a cakey texture. Just FYI!

    Flavour: Be sure to use a milk and protein powder you enjoy as they will contribute to the final flavour of the bars.

    Storing: Let cool them store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days or freezer for up to 3 months. If frozen, thaw overnight in the fridge or in the microwave. Bars can be enjoyed cold or reheated in the oven or microwave until heated to your preference.
