Recipe Sunday – Porridge Oat Bars

Hello kittens and Happy Sunday to you! After a month, I finally managed to get back into some kind of routine and yesterday was my first Saturday off in 4 weeks, so I slept (a lot!), did the laundry as it was sunny and windy perfect for hanging everything outside and went in town to get some fresh ginger root. As soon as I videocalled my parents, my mom said she saw me very relaxed, so I believe the day off was really needed! I just wanted to share this recipe with you as I made it two days ago while I was preparing dinner: 5 ingredients, 3 steps and 1 great result!

This is one of the recipes that you can find in the “Speedy Broke Vegan” book by Saskia Sidey: I didn’t know anything about the author, and it was my partner who brought the book from the library where he works. All the recipes are easy to make, demand little effort and the majority of the ingredients can be found at your grocery store (even in little rural towns!). If you can find the book at your local library, borrow it because I’m sure you’ll find something that you can make very easily. Hence, these Porridge Oat Bars.


  • 75g (3 oz) oats;
  • 150ml (1/4 pint) plant-based milk of your choice;
  • 1 banana;
  • 1 tbsp sweetener of your choice, i.e. maple syrup, brown sugar, etc.
  • 1 tsp baking powder


Preheat the oven to 180° (350° F).

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.

Pour batter into a small ovenproof dish (16×12 cm, 6 1/2×5 in). Bake until golden and firm (15-20 minutes).

That’s it!

In the book, you’ll find also some variants of this dessert, such as the Black Berry Forest, Carrot Cake and Peanut Butter&Jelly.

I hope you’ll enjoy it!
