These chewy oat bars are flourless and plant-based.
Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, I wasn't able to stock my pantry with flour, so I decided to bake without any. I used soaked chia seeds as an egg replacer, and I think they add a nice chewiness that eggs would not.
You won’t need to add sugar if you use very ripe bananas (fresh or frozen — the kind you would use for banana bread); the small amount of honey is mainly to help with binding.
I added chocolate chips because I love the combination of bananas and chocolate, and I think we can all use a little treat right now. Enjoy for breakfast, snack, or dessert.
To store, refrigerate them in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
