Vegan Breakfast Bars

Looking for a quick and easy breakfast option to prep for the week head? Look no further than these plant-based bars, crammed full of nuts, seeds and oat-y goodness. As usual here on The AM Edit, these bites are sweetened naturally using banana, dates and a hint of maple syrup.

This recipe is adapted from Amelia Freer. Try finishing with a drizzle of tahini or dark chocolate for an extra treat.


40g dates

2 tbsp chia seeds

65g tahini

3 tbsp maple syrup

1 banana

100g oats

30g mixed seeds

35g ground flaxseeds

60g chopped almonds

Approx 150ml water


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

2. Soak chia seeds and dates in hot water (around 100ml) for 10-15 minutes.

3. Add the mixture to a blender with the banana, tahini and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.

4. In a bowl, combine with all remaining ingredients. Add a little water if necessary.

5. Press into a greased baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

6. Cut into squares while still warm and then allow to cool.
