Back to Work Bars

If there’s one thing that makes going back to work/school more bearable – it’s a yummy snack in your lunch box. The first month back in the swing of things is especially tiring – so here is an easy-to-prepare snack that’s packed with goodness that’ll curb that cravings and push you over that afternoon slump!

The best part is they’re free of dairy, refined sugar, eggs and gluten! These high protein, fibre-packed, plant based bars are also so versatile. Get creative and every week you could be creating new flavours with the same base ingredients, oats, protein powder, banana and plant milk.

*Oats do have traces of gluten so opt for gluten-free oats if you have celiacs disease*

One batch makes up to 10 bars (hello 2 weeks’ worth of snacks) and these can be stored in the fridge or freezer.



Dry Ingredients:

– 1 Cup Oats
– 1 Cup Oat Flour
– 1 Tsp Cinnamon
– A pinch of Salt
– 1 Scoop Vanilla Plant Protein
– 1/3 Cup Nuts/Dried Fruit of choice
– 2 tbsp Flax & Chia Seed Mix
– 2 tbsp Peanut butter

Wet Ingredients:

– 2 Ripe Bananas (mashed)
– 1/2 Cup Soy Milk
– 1 – 2 tbsp Date Paste (or sweetener of choice)
– 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar (optional)


– Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray or bread pan with baking paper.
– Add all your dry ingredients and combine.
– Mash the banana and add all the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl.
– Combine well and transfer the mixture to your baking dish and spread (you want a nice thick n chunky bar so don’t spread too thinly)
– Add any toppings you’d like and bake for 25 – 20 minutes.
– Remove from the baking dish and allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing your bars.
– I like to heat them up as a treat or store in the fridge to eat over the week.
