Savoury Oat Bars
A savoury oat bar - proving a hit of slow releasing energy which is a great option to have on standby for when you are in need of a boost. These can be dressed with sweet or savoury options and can also be used as a bread replacement.
Serves: 10 bars
Time: 1 hour
- oven set to 180 degrees
- 2 mixing bowls (1 large, 1 medium)
- weighing scales
- wooden spoon
- loaf tray
- greaseproof paper
- 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed
- 6 tbsp of water
- 1 400g tub of coconut yoghurt or other yoghurt
- 1 tbsp of molasses
- 300g oats (use a hand blender to blast them to create oat flakes)
- 2 tsp bicarbonate soda (remove this ingredient if you want a firmer bar, the bicarb creates more lift and rise and forms a more bread like consistency)
- 2 handfuls of mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, chia)
- 0.5 tsp sea salt
- Start by preheating the oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line the loaf tray with greaseproof paper.
- Using the smaller mixing bowl, add in the flaxseed and water and allow to gel up for 5minutes.
- Add in the yoghurt along with the molasses into the mix and combine well.
- In the larger mixing bowl, add in the oats, bicarbonate soda, seeds and salt - combine well.
- Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mixing well as you go until you have combined all of the mixture.
- Transfer into the greased tray and place into the preheated oven to cook. Leave to bake for 45mins or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool fully before slicing. Keep in the fridge and consume within 4-5 days. This recipe freezes well too.
