Cashew Butter Oat Bars

Perfect To Bring For Bike Rides

A Variation of my base recipe (see post 2/28). Still on the low FOD MAP diet, I was trying to find a little bit lighter version to bring for my bike rides.

Less nutty and more bananas.

Simple Ingredients – Little Prep Needed

What You Mix

2 Bananas – smashed
1.5 Cups Quick-cooking Oats

Bananas Are Full Of Potassium, Vitamin B+C

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tbs Maple Syrup

Oats Are One Of My Favorite Whole Grains

1/2 Cup Almond Milk
1/4 Cup Cashew Butter

Cashew Butter Makes It Creamy

1 Egg – substitute for a vegan version (see below)
1.5 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Blend all ingredients together.

Blend All Well and Spread Out

Egg Substitute

For all my vegan friends, here is how you can substitute the egg. For 1 egg, use 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons of water. Let it set for a few minutes, ideally in the fridge.

Sometimes An Advantage: Smaller And Thicker, vs Larger and Thinner

Use The Right Pan Size

Previously I made the mistake spreading the batter too flat. It dried out too much and made for a crumbly bar, falling apart when trying to eat while riding… This time I picked a slightly smaller pan (26x 20 cm, or 10x 4 in) and filled it higher.

Temperature/ Baking Time

Bake @ 350 F (180 C) for 20 min.
