Chewy Banana-Nut Breakfast Bars

Yield: 12 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 over-ripe banana
  • 50 g peanut butter
  • 45 g honey
  • 130 g oats
  • 40 g pumpkin seeds
  • 30 g shredded coconut
  • 60 g dried cranberries
  • 20 g crushed pecans
  • 20 g slivered almonds
  • 40 g apricots
  • fleur de sel
  • 100 g dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180C (350F); butter a 7″ x 11″ baking pan and line with parchment paper* so that it overhangs the sides (for easy removal after baking).
  • Add the banana, peanut-butter, and honey to a bowl, and microwave for a minute or so, until the peanut butter has melted and the honey has thinned. Whisk together, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut, cranberries, pecans, almonds, and apricots.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well with a spoon. Press the mixture into the prepared pan, and sprinkle with fleur de sel. Bake for ~20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown on the top, but still a little soft to the touch. Place on a cooling rack to cool completely. Once cooled, remove from the pan and cut into 12 bars.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave, and place into a squeezy bottle. Drizzle liberally over each bar. Store in the fridge.
