If you're an oatmeal fan but need a new way to enjoy it, these bars might be just what you need. They're sweet, simple, and quick!
1cupshelled sunflower seeds
sea salt to taste
4medium ripe bananas
1/2cupflax seed meal
1/2cupunsweetened dried coconut flakes
4cupsold-fasioned rolled oats
1cupfull fat coconut milk
1tablespoonpure vanilla extract
Line a 13x9 inch glass pan with parchment and grease with oil. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 C).
Melt coconut oil in a small frying pan and add sunflower seeds. Stir constantly until browned and toasty then sprinkle with salt to taste.
Combine the sunflower seeds and all other ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until very well combined. Scrape mixture into prepared pan and spread into a smooth layer with a spatula.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the edges start to darken and the top looks dry. Remove and cool completely then cut into desired size bars. They are best stored in the fridge but should last for many days at room temperature also. If you plan to eat them over a longer period of time than freezing is probably a good idea.
