Nutribelle’s Oaty bars, great for brekkie or a snack!

Recipe makes 8 – 10 bars

  • 2 apples, cored
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence or paste
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup protein powder (or just use more oats)
  • ¼ cup dried fruit/coconut
  • ¼ cup mixed seeds or nuts
  • 2-3 tsp ginger or cinnamon (or both!)
  • Pinch salt


Preheat the oven to 190C.

Chop, grate or blitz in a blender (not tooooo smooth though) the apples and set to one side.

Mix the honey, butter and vanilla in a saucepan on the stove and melt the butter, stirring continuously. Add in the apple and stir through.

In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, protein powder (if using), seeds, fruit and ginger/cinnamon. Add the apple mix and stir well.

Pour the mix into a lined baking tray (about 1 – 1.5cm thick) and press down with the back of a spoon. You can add extra apple slices or nuts/seeds etc to decorate the top if you want to.

Pop the tray in the oven for 15 – 20 mins until cooked through.

Cool, then slice into bars.


Change it up:

  • Use the nuts/seeds etc of your choice here.
  • I’ve also made these with a heaped tbsp of cacao powder and/or chocolate protein powder for a chocolatey twist.
