These chewy oat bars are flourless and plant-based.
It seems like everyone is baking while staying at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Since I haven’t been able to stock my pantry with flour, I decided to bake without any. And, because I recently completed a 21-day plant-based eating challenge at my medical center, I have a pantry full of plant-based staples, so I decided to make a plant-based recipe. 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.
