Oatmeal Energy Bars

I am making these healthy oatmeal energy bars for quite a while now. I like to make them in the evening so that I have them for the next couple of mornings when I serve them alongside a good cup of coffee. The best part of these oatmeal bars is that the mixture of bananas and apples holds everything together and there is no need to add sugar or butter. If you prefer you can only use bananas, by adding another two and no apple.

These oatmeal energy bars are just delicious, full of fibers, vitamins and minerals and are vegan too. You can add different dried fruits, or chocolate chips and have every time a different snack.

    Have you considered adding about a teaspoon of cinnamon? We found it nice but a little bland without, so now I’m trying it with. 🙂

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      That's a good idea. You know how it is with cinnamon , some people love it some don't. In my family it happens to be the same. Let me know how did you like it with cinnamon so I know if I should add it to the recipe or not. Thanks for your comment.

    The cinnamon really took this to the next level for us. 🙂 Other pie-related spices like nutmeg or allspice would probably also perk it up if you want the kick but don’t like cinnamon. (Love your site, btw.)

      That's great, I will try  too. I added this as an optional ingredient. Thanks for replying. 

    2. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      I've made this last evening using cinnamon, and indeed it is much more better this way. 🙂

    Hi Ella,
    Can I use Desiccated Coconut instead of coconut flakes? Thanks in advance 🙂
