Beetroot, Banana, Blueberry snack bars

The 3 Bs….. which are all great for you!

I went through an odd few months after I first started being vegan, where all of a sudden I became ill soon after eating a banana.. it only happened three times but I got the picture. It was so strange so I hit the internet but could only find one forum where someone asked a similar question but there seemed to be no real outcome from that.  Anyhow, a year later and I am now ok and eating banana again in smoothies and bars… although have not fully tried eating a whole one as yet!

I had made these for my husband over a year ago and we both really enjoy it, but stopped since my funny turn with bananas. He asked me the other day if I could make them again, so I tried them again last weekend and OMG how I have missed these. They were amazing and so great that we just kept grabbing a piece from the fridge!

Ingredients:-

Bottom Layer:
  • 1 large cooked beetroot, chopped in half
  • 3 bananas
  • 175 g gluten free oats
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup
  • 100 g whole almonds
Top Layer:
  • 70 g fresh blueberries (you can also use frozen)
  • 45 g gluten free oats
  • 50 g flaked almonds
  • 10 g linseeds
  • 15 g sunflower seeds
  • 25 g pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 50 ml dairy free milk

Method:-

  1. Preheat the oven to 1800C.
  2. Line a 20cm x 20cm baking dish with grease proof paper.
  3. Prepare the bottom layer of the protein bar by blending the beetroot and bananas into a purée.
  4. Then add the gluten free oats, agave syrup and whole almonds. Pulse a few times until chopped, ensuring you leave some of the texture.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the dish and then place in the over to bake for 8 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  7. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the top layer, then spread them evenly over the baked bottom layer.

  8. Return them to the oven for a further 12-15 minutes until the top starts to turn golden brown.

  9. Remove from the oven and leave in the tin to cool.
  10. Once cooled lift the grease proof paper out of the dish and slice into bites or bars .

Enjoy!

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
