This recipe happened completely by accident. I meant to make some raw protein oat bites (which you can find the recipe for here) but I added too much water and the batter was far too thin. So I added some left over mashed banana, Muscle Mousse and baked it in the oven. Once the came out smelling sweet and delicious there was only one thing that could improve them… nut butter!
If you were wondering about the name, this came from one of my wonderful Twitter followers and I think it sums them up perfectly.
Prep: 45 mins
Cook: 35 mins
75g porridge oats
25g dried fruit and seeds (I used raisins, apple, pumpkin seed and sunflower seeds)
25g Muscle Mousse banana
1/2 ripe mashed banana
Splash of water or milk (approx 100ml-150ml)
Lashings of your favourite nut butter (I used almond butter)
1Pre-heat your oven to 180’c
2Mix together all of the dry ingredients. Then add the mashed banana and a splash of water or milk. Continue to add the liquid very slowly until everything is coated but the mixture is dry enough to pick up and shape into a bar.
3Place your bars on a lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 mintues until they turn very light golden brown. You don’t want to over bake them as they will become dry.
4Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least an hour before slicing open and filling with nut butter.
5You can either eat them immediately or wrap and take as an on the go healthy, high protein snack!
