Apple and Cinnamon Oat Bars

apple and cinnamon oat bars

For me, apple and cinnamon is such a classic combination which perfectly captures the flavours of autumn and feels so comforting. These bars are inspired by the classic combo and are ideal as a snack or even as a handy breakfast on-the-go. What's more, they're nut free so can be included as a school lunchbox treat. I hope you'll give them a try.

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, good source of fibre, promotes healthy skin

Makes 12 bars

2 apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
150g gluten free jumbo oats
100g gluten free oats
100g raisins
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
60 ml (4 tbsp) date syrup

1) Place the apples, along with 1/2 cup water, in a medium sized saucepan on the hob over a medium heat. Boil together for approximately 10 minutes until the apple is softened. Mash roughly so that you're left with a chunky apple puree. Note: You can do this step in advance, if desired.
2) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 10.5 x 8 inch rectangular brownie or cake tin with a little coconut oil.
3) In a mixing bowl, combine both types of oats along with the raisins, cinnamon and salt.
4) Stir the date syrup into the apple, then add the apple mixture to the oat mixture and stir well to thoroughly combine.
5) Press into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool in the tin then slice.
