almond and oat squares
These healthy almond and oat squares are sugarsafe and full of fibre. Make them on the weekend and don’t stress about breakfast during the week!
Preheat the oven to 200 C. Line a square cake tin with parchment. Mix the oats, ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and apricots in a mixing bowl.
Separately whisk the milk, egg, bananas, syrup and almond extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Cut the pears into small dice and stir through the mixture. Tip it into the tin, smoothing the top. Bake for 45 minutes, then cool completely before cutting into squares.
