Business guests often don’t have the time to sit and enjoy a cooked breakfast in the morning, so why not make these delicious home- made treats for them to take away
Deliciously Ella’s banana and raspberry breakfast bars
200g (7oz) oats
200ml (6½fl oz) almond milk
2 very ripe bananas
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
3 tsp of almond butter
100g (3½oz) raspberries
Place the oats in a bowl with the almond milk and soak for 10 minutes. While the oats soak, preheat the oven to 360F/180C/Gas 4.
Place the bananas on a plate and mash them until they’re totally smooth.
Once the oats have soaked for 10 minutes, stir in the banana, raspberries, cinnamon and almond butter then pour the mix into a baking dish.
Place the dish in the oven and cook for 40 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed and the top is golden-brown.
Let the loaf sit for about 20 minutes, until it’s completely cool, then slice it into bars.
Store the bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
- 2 large eggs
- 150ml pot natural low-fat yogurt

- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix briefly until you have a smooth batter – don’t overmix as this will make the muffins heavy. Divide the batter between the cases.

Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Can be stored in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
