Bottom Layer: 

·         1 large Beetroot, cooked and peeled

·         3 Bananas

·         175g Oats

·         3 tbsp of Biona Coconut Blossom Nectar

·         1 tbsp Biona Almond Butter Crunch

·         50g chopped Hazelnuts

Instructions: 

1.    Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / Gas Mark 4.

2.    Prepare the bottom layer - in a blender or food processor, blitz the beetroot and bananas to a purée then add the oats, almond butter crunch/blossom nectar and hazelnuts and pulse a few times until finely chopped (but not a completely smooth paste).

3.    Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin (or approximately similar size) with greaseproof paper or baking parchment, and spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the tin. Bake for 8 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.

4.    In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the top layer, then spread them evenly over the bottom layer. Return them to the oven for a further 12-15 minutes until starting to turn golden brown.

5.    Remove from the oven and leave in the tin to cool. Then slice into individual bites or bars and enjoy!
