Banana Oat Bars Recipe

Banana Oat Bars Recipe

Banana oat bars are the perfect sugar and plastic free lunch box treat! They’re quick to make and kids love them. You’ll find that the honey makes them sweet without having to add any sugar.

Our banana oat bars are a great alternative to packaged muesli bars and they are quick to make. These were whipped up before school and ready to go in school lunches. (And ready for me for morning tea later.) Yum!

This recipe is from Brydie Piaf and is featured in Issue 10 of the magazine, along with some other great wholefood baking ideas!
