Health Highlights


2 1/2 cup Rolled oats, dry
3 tbsp Chia seeds
1/2 cup Flaxseed meal (ground)
1/4 cup hulled Hemp seeds, shelled
3 tbsp Cacao powder, raw (unsweetened)
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Sea salt, fine
1 1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (or any other dairy free milk)
1/2 cup Maple syrup, pure
2 tbsp Almond butter (optional)

  1. Blend 1 cup of the rolled oats in a high speed blender to create oat flour.
  2. Combine in a large bowl all dry ingredients (oat flour, remaining rolled oats, chia seeds, ground flax, hemp seeds, cacao, baking powder and salt).
  3. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients (non-dairy milk, banana, maple syrup, nut butter and vanilla).
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir.
  5. Add chocolate chips and stir.
  6. Pour into a prepared pan (I line mine with parchment paper, but you could grease with canola or coconut oil).
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 min.
  8. Allow to cool before cutting into bars.
