Blueberry Oaty Bars – perfect for breakfast, lunch or snacks, you can switch around the fruit element for whatever is in season or your little one prefers.

Melt the coconut oil and almond butter together, and mash the banana
Add all your ingredients except the blueberries to a bowl then mix thoroughly to combine
Stir through the blueberries
Line a flat bottom baking tin with grease proof paper (I used a 7inch x 7inch baking tin)
Add the mixture to the baking tin and press down flat with the back of a spoon
Bake at 180c fan for 25 minutes
Leave to cool before attempting to slice into bars or squares!
Serve with yoghurt and fruit
