Today I am sharing with you one of my first recipes on this blog but updated. Biscoff Oat Bars.
They are healthy, vegan and absolutely delicious. Of course!
As you may or may not have noticed, I love oats for breakfast. It is just so good…and luckily we can often find them in bars! So when I don’t want to have a cookie for breakfast (is that even possible?), I change for a bar. An oat bar of course! I have similar versions of them, but this one my favorite…
Well, what do you need for these bars/wedges?
Dry ingredients for the base: oat and sugar
Wet ingredients to assemble the dry ingredient: golden syrup, biscoff spread.
Other ingredients to taste and for the texture: carrots and applesauce.
Why should you make this Recipe?
Oats: You can replace oats by anything you like most: peanuts if you like, or substitute some of the oats for flour etc.
Brown sugar is more powerful than granulated sugar and pairs perfectly with biscoff spread (full of cinnamon and spices flavours) and that’s why I chose it but you can change for any other sugar.
Golden syrup: I am absolutely a fan of golden syrup but maple syrup is completely fine, you’ll just have a maple flavour and maybe you would like to leave out the biscoff and replace it with more maple syrup.
Biscoff spread: You can, of course, change the biscoff spread for peanut butter, which is also great on this recipe, or any nut butter. Did you know that Biscoff spread is vegan?
Carrots and applesauce are completely optional. BUT, if you have any grated carrots or applesauce (homemade is even better J ), let them in! I am always looking for a healthier way to bake, but only if it is better that way or if the taste is the same. So I am telling you: carrots and applesauce are optional but highly recommended.
So, wet ingredients in a medium bowl, wet ingredients mixed in another, combine, throw you carrots in, press down and bake. Wait, whaaat?
