Are breakfast bars vegan?
Some breakfast bars are specially made for the vegans and some just happen to be accidentally vegan snacks.
With the majority sneaking in the odd whey, egg powder or honey in their ingredients, you may not want to take the risk.
The good thing is that you don’t have to, and frankly, you can enjoy a much more healthy, homemade baked oat bar – made with fewer, cleaner ingredients.
This recipe doesn’t require any special equipment. As the photos show you could make this recipe with a fork and bowl to mix the ingredients, and a simple baking dish.

For these vegan breakfast bars the dates and the banana worked in themselves as a great binder, which effectively works to hold them together.
Traditionally people tend to use egg as a binder, common in a wide range of baking recipes too; which is why one may want to resort to a homemade recipe, to avoid unwanted ingredients such as the likes of which.
This veganised breakfast bar recipe is high in protein, gluten free, and filling, to fuel you through your busy week’s routine.
These only need a short baking time to just simply solidify them, then you can cut them how you want, eat them while warm or save them for your week’s go-to snack!
