Fruity energy bars

A no-added sugar, healthy recipe for fruity energy bars.

One of the things I’m always trying to do better is make lunchbox snacks that I can take to work. I’m a very active person and tend to need a mid-morning and afternoon snack that properly refuels me in readiness for a workout, or after an early morning run. And most cereal bars are not particularly healthy. So in the past few months I’ve been making my own fruity, sugar-free energy bars to take into work.

Directions

1. Stone and dice the plum, and core and slice the apples (as with these baked apple slices). Place on a baking tray and roast in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes or until crispy and a little shrivelled.

2. Whizz the bananas and eggs in a blender until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a bowl and gradually stir in the porridge oats until the mixture is tough to stir but isn’t breaking up.

3. Add the fruit to the mix, stir gently, then pour onto a lightly-greased baking tray and cook in the oven at 190 degrees for 25 minutes or until the outside of the flapjack-style cake is browned.

4. Cut into bars and eat.
