LISA’S TIP - This recipe can be made using frozen bananas. Remember to freeze any unused ripe bananas in freezer bags so that you are always ready to make these quick and easy breakfast bars. Simply take the frozen bananas out of the freezer, place in a sieve to drain off the water and leave to defrost at room temperature for 30 minutes or so before mashing.
These bars freeze well. Freeze them in individual portions so that you can grab one for an easy breakfast on the go! Alternatively, they keep stored in an air tight container for 1 week, kept refrigerated.
This recipe also makes a delicious granola style cereal – simply spread the mixture over a baking sheet lined with baking parchment and bake until golden, remove from the oven and leave to cool. Once cold, crumble the “granola” into a lidded container and keep in the fridge – fabulous eaten with milk, yoghurt or just on its own!
