Coconut and Cacao Power Bars (vegan) / Energetske pločice sa kokosom i kakaom (veganske)

You all know that I am a huge fan of portable breakfasts and snacks. These delicious bars can work as both and are an awesome way to use up your spotty bananas (honestly, the best kind of bananas). They are packed with a bunch of healthy stuff and can be stored in your fridge for weeks, when wrapped up tightly in cling foil.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 18 bars / E0.29 UR per bar / 5.18 EUR for all)

4 bananas (0.80 EUR)

½ cup plant-based milk (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

½ cup coconut oil (0.67 EUR)

½ cup honey (0.80 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

500 grams of old-fashioned oats (0.80 EUR)

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl mash up the bananas, then combine with milk, vanilla, coconut oil, honey, salt and cacao. Add in the oats, shredded coconut, flaxseed, sunflower seeds and raisins. Stir until everything is well combined.

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking sheet and even out. Be sure that everything is spread out in an even layer and pressed down tightly. Also, be sure to even out the edges so nothing burns. Bake for an hour, until slightly crispy on top. At this point everything will be really soft, but the bars will firm up as they cool. Cut the bars up immediately after removing from the oven and then leave to rest and cool down completely on their baking tray. Once the bars are fully cooled, wrap them up individually in cling foil for future storage and keep in your fridge.

Već i vrapci na grani znaju da sam veliki ljubitelj svakog prijenosnog doručka i malog snacka. Ove ukusne pločice jednako dobro pokrivaju obje uloge te su također i dobar način da iskoristite višak točkastih banana (iskreno, to su najbolje banane). Ovakve pločice su krcate sa zdravim sastojcima, a u hladnjaku ih možete čuvati i nekoliko tjedana ukoliko su dobro zamotane u prijanjajuću foliju.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 18 pločica / 2,15 kn po pločici / 38,71 kn za sve)

4 banane (6,00 kn)

½ šalice veganskog mlijeka (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice kokosovog ulja (5,00 kn)

½ šalice meda (6,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice čistog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

500 g krupnih zobenih pahuljica (6,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica sitno ribanog kokosa (4,50 kn)

½ šalice mljevenog lana (1,50 kn)

1 šalica suncokretovih sjemenki (3,00 kn)

1 šalica grožđica (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 150°C. Obložite veliki protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U velikoj zdjeli zgnječite banane, pa im dodajte mlijeko, vaniliju, kokosovo ulje, med, sol i kakao. Dodajte zobene, kokos, lan, suncokret i grožđice, te dobro sve promiješajte da se sjedini.

Smjesu preselite na pripremljeni protvan te sve poravnajte. Posebno pazite da je sve rašireno u ravnomjernom sloju i utisnite u protvan. Također pripazite i da su rubovi poravnati kako vam ništa ne bi zagorilo. Pecite sve oko sat vremena, dok se blago ne zahrska. Kada izađe iz pećnice, sve će biti relativno mekano, no stisnuti će se kako se stvari budu hladile. Pločice izrežite čim ih izvadite iz pećnice, pa ostavite da se hlade na protvanu. Kada su se pločice skroz ohladile, svaku posebno zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i čuvajte u hladnjaku.
