Green Tea Oat Bars

I've always loved cereal bars, they're such a great healthier alternative to other convenient snack foods. But a lot of mainstream oat bars have added sugar in, and sometimes, believe it or not, I don't want sugar. (Weird, huh?) Making your own oat bars is so much better because you know exactly what's gone in there.

These homemade oat bars are a great natural energy boost, a healthy pick me up for any time of day.

Are you, too, having one of those weird 'I actually don't want sugar' days?
Then try my recipe below for some

Green Tea Oat Bars

Green Tea Oat Bars


2 1⁄2 cups Oats
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup dried fruit (roughly chopped)
1 1⁄2 cups Green Tea
2 Apples (peeled and chopped)
(Optional) Nuts (roughly chopped)



 - Preheat oven to Fan 170 C / 190 C / Gas Mark 5

1.Stir the Baking Powder into the Oats in a large bowl.

2. Add Dried Fruit (and Nuts).

3. In a pan, over medium heat, heat your chopped Apples in about 2 cups of water.
After a few minutes add your Green Tea bag (or loose leaves).

4. Once the Apples have softened, take the pan off the heat and add the Apples and Tea to your Oats.
(If you're using loose leaves, remove the Apples, then pour the rest into the bowl through a sieve)

5. Mash the Apple into a puree and mix it all together.

6. Spread the mixture evenly onto a lined baking tray. 

7. Bake for about 15 minutes.




  1. Ah, what a lovely recipe!! I know exactly what you mean about those I don't actually want any sugar days. I have all these ingredients in my kitchen at the moment, will definitely give this a go. I find oat bars are awesome for days out where you can just grab one of your bag instead of hunting down a food source for ages lol :) and I definitely agree that home made is best. Thank you for sharing this scrummy recipe, Vanisha! x
