Every spring I wake up one day, and decide it’s enough: enough of artificial sugar, enough of comfort food on repeat, and enough of store-bought snacs! And this year is no different: last week, when the sun have finally appeared, an first tiny leaves started blooming, I realized it’s time to get back on track, and my first decision was to make these healthy and delicious, Nutella and banana granola bars! Now, I know what you must be thinking now: Nutella isn’t really healthy! Well, I’m just using a tiny bit of it, and believe me, it makes all the difference in the world!
And I just love having these on hand, they are really filling so they stop me from over smacking too!
Also, these granola bars are full of chia seeds and oats and have zero added sugar or fat! And of course, if you’d like them to be 100% sugar free, just skip the Nutella !
All you need:
2 ripe bananas
1 cup oat meal
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup nutella
1 table spoon coca powder
Mix it all well together, and pour over a baking sheet covered with wax baking paper. Bake for around 15 minutes on 350 F, and let cool completely. Once cooled down, you can add a bit of Nutella “icing”on top!( I usually put a spoon in a small zip bag, cut off the top, and then decorate it as if it was a cake!
They are perfect to freeze for later, eat on the go, or wrap up as a little gift. Or even as an easy breakfasts for those busy mornings! And my kids kept asking for more!
This recipe is for around 10 bars, so I suggest you making a double batch, you’ll thank me later! You can even add chocolate chips, nuts or dried cranberries! Enjoy!
