Rice Banana and Cinnamon Bars

New healthy version of traditional packed bars! This recipe came out in a busy period, full of work…and when it’s like that, I crave sweets, comfort food, both after dinner and during the afternoon. So, it’s worth having a healthy recipe that saves us from snacking some junk food. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 100 gr rice puffs
  • 4 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 3 tablespoons raisins (or dark chocolate chips if you prefer)
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon (even more if you are a cinnamon lover)
  • 5 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°
  2. Soak the raising into some water
  3. Mash the banana, add almond milk and the drained raisins
  4. Mix melted coconut oil, cinnamon, agave. Combine it with the banana mash
  5. Add the rice puffs. Combine well.
  6. Using a cake pan (for these quantities we used a pan that ha 20cm of diameter), spread the dough and press it first with the spoon, then with your hands, until it looks flat and spongy.
  7. Bake at 180° for 25 minutes
  8. Allow the rice cake to cool down before cutting it. You can then give to it the shape you prefer, we choose bars.
  9. The bars last in the fridge for 3 days
