Healthy High Protein Rhubarb Oats Bars: a really simple yet delicious breakfast you can prep in advance. These bars are high in fibre, packed with protein and includes vegan substitutes.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • 2 Tbsp Buckwheat Flour
  • ¼ cup protein powder (I used cookies and cream flavour)
  • 1 flax egg or egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup milk of choice (I used almond)
  • 1 small mashed banana
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or a few vanilla flavour drops
  • ½ cup pre stewed rhubarb *
  • Tbsp Hemp Seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180oc. Grease or line a circular silicone cake mould or 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients (maple syrup, banana, egg, vanilla extract and milk) and ⅔ of the rhubarb.
  3. Then add in the dry ingredients (gluten-free rolled oats, buckwheat flour, protein powder and baking powder, hemp seeds). Combine the dry and wet ingredients gently with a spatula.
  4. Pour the mixture into an 8x8 baking dish and add the remaining rhubarb on top.
  5. Bake 35 min or until toothpick comes out clean, but the top is still soft to touch.
  6. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes then take it out on a cooling rack.
  7. Cut into squares and enjoy!
Notes
* I boiled my rhubarb with a splash of water and tbsp sugar
