Servings: 7 serves


  • 1 cup plant based or any dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut nectar or sweetener of your choice
  • 2 tbsps melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp all spice powder
  • 2 apples diced into small pieces keep one half aside
  • 3 cups oats


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC
  • Add all the ingredients, except one diced apple, into a high-speed blender in the order listed above, and blend till smooth (you can keep it chunky if you like)
  • Spoon the batter into a square baking pan (I use parchment paper in a 22x22cm silicone baking tray)
  • Sprinkle the left over apple pieces over the batter and press down gently with the back of a spoon so the apple gets into the batter
  • You can sprinkle some more of the 3 spices used over the top of the batter if you want
  • Put it in the oven for 20 minutes (or a bit more, if you want to brown the apple)
  • Take the tray out after that and cut into bars
  • Try to wait for it to cool a bit before you bite into them…but good luck trying to do that! I serve mine in a bowl with a few tablespoons of almond milk…I used to use a dollop of cream as well.


Want breakfast ready when you wake up? Put the baking tray in the oven and delay start your oven to come on around 20 - 30 minutes before you wake up.
Make sure you input the cook time as 10 minutes ONLY!
This will allow the oven to come on, cook for 10 minutes and go off, leaving the oven warm enough to cook the oat bars for the next 10 or so minutes to perfection.
