Prepare these on the weekend and grab them on the go
2 ripe bananas
1.5 cup of organic porridge oats
1/2 cup of raisins
1 handful of crumbled almonds
Pre-heat oven at 200 degrees celsius. Smash two ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Add 1.5 of oats, 1/2 raisins and 1 handful of crumbled almonds. Mix well and let the mixture soak for 5-10 minutes.

Let the oat bars cool in the fridge and store them in a container. Consume within 5 days.
