I do this because:
1) I know I'm not the only one with a dairy intolerance & a sweet tooth
2) I know how addicting sugar can be.
It didn't take me long to find this recipe this morning. This woman is a genius - these are SO good!
No flour, no dairy, and no added sugar?
Ummmm yes, please!
So let's get right to it!
What you need:
- 2 1/4 cups Oats
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 medium ripe bananas
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract (gluten free, if desired)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup honey (agave nectar if you're completely vegan)
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (vegan, if desired)
For chocolate drizzle:
- 2 tablespoons chocolate chips (vegan, if desired)
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
To make oat flour: Place oats into blender or food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes until oatmeal resembles flour. You may need to stop blender and stir oats a couple of times to ensure that all oats have been blended. I used my Nutri-bullet.
Transfer oat flour medium bowl; whisk in baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
Add bananas, vanilla, applesauce, and honey to a separate bowl or a blender; blend (or use a hand mixer) for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Add to oat flour mixture and mix until just combined. Gently fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly with rubber spatula.
Bake for 15 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached. Cool 10-15 minutes on wire rack.
Prepare drizzle by adding 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips and coconut oil in microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high 30 seconds; stir well to combine then drizzle over the top of bars.
