Breakfast Bars…customisable, vegan & free-from!
Want something quick and easy for breakfast? Need something portable if you’re always on the run? These breakfast bars will definitely do the job! Did I plan them? Well no, not really! What happened? The allotment happened! 😛
Do you know how quick and freely without any attention rhubarb grows? So we’ve had crumble, ice-cream (did you see the rhubarb ice-cream?) roasted maple rhubarb and rhubarb and apple cake (I’ll post that another day)… and much as I love all of them, after four one-kilo harvests, it was time for something else! Was it planned? No! Not in any way, shape or form!
So I was thinking what else I could pair with rhubarb (apart from the ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice, apples, forest fruits and raspberries I’ve already tried) and as I love chocolate I thought I’d see what happened if I combined rhubarb with raw cacao powder! Well, apart from the very strong smell in my kitchen whilst this was in the initial stages of cooking, it goes good… real good! 🙂 Whilst this was bubbling away I suddenly thought that I had no plan for it (I think I thought I was just going to it eat with yogurt)! Oats are always a winner in my kitchen and had it been morning I probably would’ve settled for porridge, so I thought ooo, overnight oats! I mixed a few oats in and then had a taste and it was something I wanted to eat again and again but I’m not really an overnight oats in the middle of the day person! 😛 So I added a few more oats… then a few more and then decided that I could add even more and make it into bars! Don’t you just love it when a recipe just evolves before your eyes!
So into a baking tray it went and hey presto breakfast bars! Of course, you don’t just have to eat them for breakfast! Elevenses (if you do that sort of thing) would be great, or a handy snack at any time. Customisable did I say? Oh yes! I’m excited to make these again and add some almonds, raisins and chopped apricots ooo or maybe even hazelnut and choc chip! Why haven’t I used rhubarb as a base for bars before… ?!?
