Serving Size: Make 12 Bars
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
1 cup Fresh Blueberries
1 cup Dates
1 large Ripe Bananas
1 1/2 cups Apple Juice
3 cups Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Walnuts
3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1- Soak the dates in the apple juice for 10 to 15 minutes in a small bowl. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure the edges of a 9x9-inch baking pan are covered with parchment paper. Cut slits in the paper's corners so that it overlaps and lays flat.
2- In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups of the rolled oats with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder. Mix and set aside.
3- In a blender, combine the remaining 1 cup of rolled oats, the bananas, and the vanilla extract. Set the dates aside after removing them from the apple juice. Strain the juice and puree it in a blender until smooth.
4- Add the dates to the blender, and pulse a few times until the dates are in small pieces.
5- Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix well. Stir in the blueberries and walnuts.
6- Pour the batter into the baking pan with a spatula. 30–35 minutes in the oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
7- Cool at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
