COCOA BANANA BARS


Here is one of our favorite chocolate indulgences. This Cocoa Banana Bars  contains rolled oat, cocoa powder and mashed banana.

It was specifically made for you to enjoy a sweet treat without loads of sugar and fat. This is also egg free and could be turned into diary free by replacing whole  milk with almond or rice milk.  It  is the easiest and yummiest  bars and they don't last long in my kitchen!

COCOA BANANA  BARS
Yield  : 20 slices

1 C rolled oat
1 C self rising flour
1/2 C + 1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 C melted butter
1/4 C  milk
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 medium banana mashed



METHOD

Preheat oven @ 170C and grease 9 x13  in pan.

Combine melted butter, cocoa powder, milk and banana in a small bowl.

Place rolled oat, flour and sugar in a mixing bowl, mix well.

Add wet ingredients into flour mixture, stir until well incorporated.

Spoon into prepared pan, level top with back of spoon,

Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Let sit in the pan for 5 minutes,  slice while they are still warm.

Janis...You can make your own by combining 1 cup all purpose flour with 1.5 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Hope this helps!
