It's that time of year when everything is starting to get a little crazy right? Christmas is around the corner and things are just generally very busy. We wanted to create a delicious recipe that was quick to make, uses pantry staples and that's suitable for anyone to eat on-the-go, or for a healthier, package-free snack.

Makes 12 large bars


4 bananas, mashed
2 C rolled quick oats
10 whole pitted dates, softened
1/2 C cranberries
2 Tbsp oat mylk
1 tsp sea salt

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees fan bake. Prepare a small baking tray (roughly 15cm x 15cm) and line it with baking paper.

Add your dates to a pot of hot water and soften for 5 minutes. Drain your softened dates and lightly mash with a potato masher.

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
