5-Ingredient Vegan Caramelized Banana & Nut Bars

5-Ingredient Vegan Caramelized Banana & Nut Bars

These 5-Ingredient Vegan Caramelized Banana & Nut Bars are packed with deep caramelized banana flavour & are made with only a handful of ingredients. No refined sugar! Pack them for work, for picnic, or just for an emergency energy boost.

These banana bars have to be my favourite snack right now; I mean, I made a massive batch, so maybe that explains why I am eating these every day 😀

Banana bars are gluten-free and sweetened naturally. Believe it or not, the bananas are actually roasted. Have you every cooked a banana? It’s worth the try!

The oats, seeds and nuts are toasted separately, then using a food processor, all the ingredients are added there and blitzed until smooth-ish.

The ‘paste’ is then pressed onto a pan, and baked again, then cut into squares.

Ingredients:

4 medium-sized bananas, sliced into 1/2 cm thick slices

1.5 cup (216g) nuts/seeds, a mix of walnuts cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds

1 cup (81g) oats

6 (6 ) dates

1/4 tsp salt

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Method:

1. Place sliced bananas on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Add oats and nuts to another baking dish. Bake the sliced banana at 375 deg F (190 C) for 15 mins, Reduce temperature to 350 deg f (180 C) then add the nuts and oats to the oven and bake for another 15 mins. Let them cool.

Alternatively, you can cook the bananas in a skillet with 2-3 tbsp non-dairy milk until caramelizing.

2. Add the toasted nuts and half of the oats to a food processor. Pulse to break the nuts into a coarse meal, then add the dates along with the caramelized bananas and pulse to break down the bananas a bit. Add cinnamon, salt, the other half of the oats and pulse again until a dough-like state. (If your dates are not very soft, process with the banana to break them down before this step)

3. Press this mix into a parchment-lined brownie pan and bake at 300 F (150 C) for 20 mins.
Cool, slice and store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
