Super healthy, super tasty! Full of the “good stuff” & if you omit the chocolate it is sugar free and Paleo friendly (already is gluten free). Loads of energy in these “guilt free” treats!

Ingredients (serves 16 | makes 16 squares)

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 Cup Quinoa
  • 1/4 cup chia seed
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 Tbsp melted dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Blend the ripe bananas and dates in the blender (should achieve a “chunky puree”).
  2. Mix the banana/date puree with the rest of the ingredients. Press into a 9 X 12 pan that has been lined with baking paper.
  3. Bake for 35 mins and cool completely. Cut into squares, when completely cool the squares can be topped with melted chocolate (optional).

  • A delicious recipe!


  • Love the individual packing I would love this recipe I need to try this


  • Have never used banana in bars but it’s interesting will have to give it a go


  • Nice ingredients. A pity it’s quite hard to find sugar free dried cranberries. I need to order a new stock online.


  • I have in my pantry all the ingredients to make this recipe sounds fun!


  • Another great recipe. What a great supply of recipes this month – most of which I have never tried. I am always looking for easy recipes for children to both help make and to eat and am blessed this month. Thanks for sharing.


  • Thanks for sharing – looks and sounds great.


  • A good one to get the children involved.


  • What a pity that these use bananas. Not my favourite. But I love all the other ingredients. :-)


  • Oh yum, these sound delicious.


  • Saved for school lunches. I’m on a mission since food seems to be coming home uneaten, this holiday we will be trying a few new things and finding some to pack that won’t get wasted. This one sounds like a winner.


  • Yum, I need to get back into making healthier treats, these look great.


  • YES! No nuts, I love that I’ll be able to make these for school.


  • Unless it’s organic dark chocolate without sugar I wouldn’t consider this so healthy. Be aware that dried cranberries often contain added sugar as well and aren’t so healthy.


  • What a lovely healthy snack. Thanks for sharing.
