Apricot Breakfast Bars

May 20, 2012
Super Duper Geeky Sista!My breakfast bars are officially my favourite pre workout snack.  They are very addictive so you may find yourself nibbling on the randomly throughout the day.  They are also great for studying.  Oh yes exam time is stressful and there is nothing worse then attempting to do a late night study munching on foods which do nothing for your brain power.  My breakfast bars last up to three days and are great for eating on the go.  I wanted to pack in as much nutritional goodness as possible from protein to vitamin c, but if you can’t find the ingredients i’ve used, try crushing some nuts or use some other dried fruits.


2 handfuls of linseeds, 2 mashed up medium bananas, 160g oats, 60g dried apricots (chopped into small pieces), a few shakes of flaxseed, 100g butter and 3tbsp of clear honey.

This recipe has been adapted from Morrison’s Magazine (Result Customer Communications, 2012)

1. Mix the oats, dried apricots, bananas, seeds and flaxseed in a large bowl and stir well.
2. Place the butter and honey in a pan on a low heat then stir occasionally until the mixture has melted.
3. Pour the butter and honey in the large bowl and mix all of the ingredients together.
4. Grease a low baking tray with some butter and sprinkle with a little flour.
5. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C / Gas Mark 4.
6. Press the oat mix into the tray and smooth the top layer with the back of a spoon.
7. Bake the oat bars for 30 minutes.
8.  Leave the oat bars to cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars.
