Peanut Butter & Jelly Oat Bars Recipe.

Today I’m sharing one of my favourite recipes with you; peanut butter & jelly oat bars. I have always been a snacker and so I’m always on the hunt for healthy but filling snacks. These oat bars do the trick. They’re sweet, filling and so yummy. I tend to make a huge batch of these on Sundays and then eat them throughout the week. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup soy milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup (or any syrup of your choice)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • For the filling:
    • 3 tbsp raspberry jam (or any berry jam of your choice)
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your over to 200Β°C
  2. Mash the ripe bananas in a bowl
  3. To the bananas add the soy milk, golden syrup and peanut butter. Mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl add the oats, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until well combined.
  5. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix.
  6. Add the sunflower seeds and flax seeds to the mixture and mix until well combined.
  7. Line a baking dish with baking paper.
  8. Place half the mixture in the baking dish and mould it into a smooth layer on the bottom of the dish.
  9. On top of the layer add your peanut butter and jam. Spread these evenly across the layer.
  10. Take the remaining half of your mixture and create a layer on top of your filling, so that everything is covered.
  11. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. Once fully baked let the bars cool a little bit before cutting them. They taste great still a little bit warm. They also store very well: keep them in a airtight contained in the fridge for up to 5 days or keep them in the freezer for several months.

Let me know if you try these out and what you think of them!
