Blueberry Almond Chia Squares

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 22, 2011


Last weekend, I found myself at the Farmer’s Market ogling fresh blueberries.

Before I left, Eric said, “Don’t bring back more than you can eat,” with a wink. This was surely a challenge.

I left with 2 pounds of blueberries and the complete confidence that I would eat all of them. He obviously doesn’t realize that I’m capable of eating my own weight in pretty much any fruit or vegetable. Eric isn’t a big blueberry fan, so I knew that I was on my own for this match.

This week, I made Blueberry Banana Pie Vegan Overnight Oats (so amazing!)


Raw Buckwheat Breakfast Porridge with blueberries and cinnamon.


and now, Blueberry Almond Chia Squares!


And I think I’m starting to turn blue.



Blueberry Almond Chia Squares

The ultimate gooey blueberry square packed with chia seeds, oats, and almonds! They make a great breakfast square as they are light, healthy, and oil-free thanks to the applesauce.

Note: Some of you commented saying that the bars crumbled. I didn’t have this problem, but changing up the ingredients or liquid sweetener may effect the results. Please allow to cool completely before cutting as that will help too. :)

Inspired by Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars.

Yield: 12 squares

  • 2 cups regular rolled oats
  • 1 & 1/4 cup oat flour (process rolled oats until flour forms)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (ground flax probably works)
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tbsp nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a square pan (I used 8” x 8”) with two pieces of parchment paper (this is recommended as the blueberries explode!!)

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (rolled oats, oat flour, cinnamon, chia, salt, and Sucanat). In another small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (nut butter, applesauce, brown rice syrup, extracts). Add wet to dry and stir well until throughly combined.

3. Fold in the blueberries and almonds and pour into pan. Spread batter with wet hands and press firmly so it packs together. This will help them stick together.

4. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350F. Allow to cool completely before cutting. Makes 12 squares or however many you want!



As you can see, the blueberries got all gooey and delicious while baking! They are a soft square with a nice chewy texture laced with gooey blueberry ‘jam’. We really enjoyed these and I quickly froze them for my nephews next week.

And I’m seriously craving one after typing up this post! Are blueberry squares good frozen? haha…jk!


aaaaaaand…because it’s Friday and we all like to fool off a bit, I thought I would share a few websites that I’m loving lately!

1) Pinterest

“Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.”

If you haven’t signed up for an account yet, you definitely should! You can check out my boards here: (especially the animal one!!) I created a board for food, travel, photography, fashion, animal, and home décor inspiration. Ahhhh it’s just addictive for the creative mind.

[Mom you would love this!!!]

2)  Kickstarter

When Eric showed me this website last week, I was absolutely blown away! Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. People from all over the world submit their unique project and business ideas and then ‘fundraise’ to pledgers. Some Kickstarters have raised over $100,000 in funding for their business ideas! The cool thing about it is that the pitchers still retain 100% ownership of their business.

3) Non-GMO Shopping Guide

Your guide to buying non-genetically modified products! Amazing, informative website to help you avoid the companies that use GMO’s and support the ones who don’t.

What websites are you loving lately?

Those bars look amazing I went blueberry picking a few weeks ago and came home with 10lbs hoping to make a few things, unfortunately my bf is a blueberry lover and they were completely gone within a week :( favorite new site,


Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove July 22, 2011 at 8:56 am

I’m not a big blueberry eater (which is weird because I love so many other fruits), but these look delicious. Maybe I’ll try these anyway… give blueberries a second chance!


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 22, 2011 at 8:58 am

The bars sound lovely! And in my opinion, there are not enough blue foods in this world! (Real ones I mean, blue Kool Aid doesn’t count). I’m totally going to add you to my Pinterest followed boards! I’ve been loving it as well, even though it takes up a ridiculous amount of my time! Have a lovely Friday Ange!


Katie July 22, 2011 at 8:59 am

I just went strawberry picking and I have a raspberry bush that is going OFF in my backyard right now. I need all the berry recipes I can get!

I’ll probably go blueberry picking in a month too, because I am a glutton for berries and I have a freezer to stock for the winter. :)


Ashley July 22, 2011 at 9:00 am

I love the sound of these, and I don’t even like fruit in desserts/baked goods! I just made your carrot chia spelt muffins and can’t wait to try one for my morning snack today. :)


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 22, 2011 at 9:00 am

Thanks for the explanation of Pinterest. I’ve been hearing so much about it but haven’t caved and actually checked it out yet. I’m hesitant to get involved in yet another social media/internet time suck!


Meredith July 22, 2011 at 9:09 am

Those bars look FANTASTIC! Definitely need to try them soon, I have a blueberry obsession!


Hayley @ Oat Couture July 22, 2011 at 9:09 am

Ooh pinterest sounds like a fun way to spend a few hours! :)


Dana Karuza August 12, 2020 at 10:59 am

Well, I made this with blueberrries for a camping trip treat. They were a hit! I have some in the oven again but, this time made with Blackberries, Raspberries and Blueberries for a triple delight. Love sweetening with sucanet and brown rice syrup. both new to me. Love the flavor. Thanks.


Nikki T July 22, 2011 at 9:11 am

Yay Pinterest!! So addictive…
I just followed you! Love your boards :)


Jen July 22, 2011 at 9:12 am

I love when blueberries get all gooey. That’s my favorite part about baking something with them. And I love that this recipe can easily be GF by using GF oats! Yay!

As for websites, I love Foodgawker. The amazing photographs always inspire me, and I love that the pictures are all linked to the blogs they came from. So in addition to getting meal ideas, I find new blogs to follow!


Amanda Elliott July 22, 2011 at 9:18 am

I am OBSESSED with pinterest. My favorite board is my animal one too! The cuteness is out of this world! Here is my animal one:


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 22, 2011 at 10:22 am

heh love the cat with the glasses!


Julie @ Shining From Within July 22, 2011 at 9:23 am

I hear so much about pinterest!

I am loving blueberries, I have a 1/2 cup of them every morning :)


Holly @ The Runny Egg July 22, 2011 at 9:33 am

I recently signed up for Pinterest but I haven’t done anything with it. Seems like a neat idea though.

I love blueberry bars — these look delicious!


Lauren at Keep It Sweet July 22, 2011 at 9:35 am

I so wish I could go home and make these right now!


brandi July 22, 2011 at 9:36 am

These look great! We’re obsessed with blueberries right now, too.


Charlie July 22, 2011 at 9:44 am

These squares look so good! I wish it wasn’t too hot to use my oven :P.
Thanks for sharing the sites! Love the non-GMO guide!


Michelle | Gold-hearted Girl July 22, 2011 at 9:45 am

Yum! I love bars like this, but I can’t ever justify the amount of sugar in conventional ones. This recipe is great!


Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 22, 2011 at 9:45 am

I love blueberries! They’re really expensive here in Ireland though so they’re a treat for me :)


Alayna @ Thyme Bombe July 22, 2011 at 9:47 am

Gorgeous bars! I was just craving blueberries yesterday and ended up making blueberry muffins, obviously I baked too soon!


Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine July 22, 2011 at 9:49 am

Those look so delicious. :) Love your photography Angela!


Bethany @ More Fruit Please July 22, 2011 at 9:56 am

Mmmm… I have a pint of blueberries sitting in my fridge that I think are just begging to be turned into squares now!


Brooke July 22, 2011 at 9:57 am

All I can think about is Violent Beauregard in Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory!

ittybitsofbalance July 22, 2011 at 9:58 am

Love chia seeds! Never thought to put them in a bar :) Thanks


LizAshlee July 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

I love being able to bake with delicious blueberries…oh and you know this girl loves a good bar recipe!

Thanks for the good website info…excited to check ’em out! Happy Friday!!


Alex @ The Plum Foodie July 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

Wow.. these blueberry recipes look absolutely delicious – especially the blueberry banana oatmeal. I may have to give that one a whirl this weekend!! As for a website I’m loving lately… I have to say – just researching blogs from peoples’ comments on my favorite pages have really interested me. I love finding new blogs to follow. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you come across a new and enticing recipe you just can’t wait to try. Love it! Enjoy your weekend!


Cait @ Cait hates Cake July 22, 2011 at 10:04 am

The gooey blueberries look amazing. I am signed up on Pinterest, but avoiding actually using it as I know I will get totally sucked in!


Lindsey @ Why Just Eat July 22, 2011 at 10:07 am

I’m so glad you posted this – I have so many chia seeds and can only eat so much oatmeal!


Girl in the pink July 22, 2011 at 10:09 am

Love that kickstarting website – I’d never heard of it before!

Another deliscious looking recipe to add to my list!


Cait's Plate July 22, 2011 at 10:13 am

I’ve heard such good things about Pinterest. I really need to get off my butt and check it out!

Those squares look absolutely amazing. Better than anything I could ever buy in a store. Time to franchise our Glo Bakery ;)


OSGMOM July 22, 2011 at 10:17 am

Thanks so much for the links to Pinterest (LOVE it & can’t wait to use it) Kickstarter (thanks Eric!) is such an interesting concept too. I’ve just bookmarked the three websites and I’ll be spending time on each of these sites.


kris (everyday oats) July 22, 2011 at 10:35 am

These bars look fantastic! I can eat blueberries til I turn blue. Plus it’s my favorite color anyways :)


Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather July 22, 2011 at 10:46 am

I bet they are good frozen too! The soft blueberries baked in look delicious! Glad you conquered the blueberry challenge!


Heather (heathers dish) July 22, 2011 at 10:57 am

I want to dive into that batch! The blueberry juice looks Soooo good!


Beach Bum Beauty July 22, 2011 at 11:06 am

These beauties look chewey and scrumptious. Blueberries are my favourite fruit so am always looking for ideas on what to do with them :-)


Amber K July 22, 2011 at 11:21 am

If you like Kickstarter, you should definitely check out Empowering those around the world with loans. So far I’ve only helped a classroom get enough money to purchase some books, but there are ALL sorts of ways to help those who need it.

And everyone should also visit (ignore that Dr. Phil is at the top, unless you actually like him, lol) or especially read the book Think by Lisa Bloom. I didn’t think I’d like it, but as women we need to feed our brains more!


Cat @Breakfast to Bed July 22, 2011 at 11:30 am

you pin???? I have got to start following you!


Kelsey July 22, 2011 at 11:35 am

mouthwatering! you can never have too many blueberries :)


Jenny @ Train for Wellness July 22, 2011 at 11:37 am

Sometimes it’s like you can read my mind. After making your lightened-up granola last night I was wondering what I was going to do with the leftover applesauce – these look fantastic! I love anything with blueberries.


Stephanie @ Running in the Kitchen July 22, 2011 at 11:50 am

I love Pinterest! Thanks for the non-GMO website. I’ve been wanting to read more about this.


Zestful Lou July 22, 2011 at 11:58 am

I am so addicted to tastespotting lately. I spend way too much time on it, but I find myself getting lost in the beautiful pictures and creative recipes!!


Heidi @ Food Doodles July 22, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Those look delicious! Blue is definitely a good color to be when these are involved :D


laura July 22, 2011 at 12:14 pm

These look wonderful & yummy! Can’t wait to try them, possibly with raspberries too. :)


Maria July 22, 2011 at 12:31 pm

What a great treat! I love blueberries! I can’t wait to try this recipe!


katie July 22, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I’m not sure how the bars would be frozen but freezing just the blueberries is always a good summer treat. I use frozen berries in place of cereal sometimes when I really need to cool down. Just a huge bowl of berries, milk, and other toppings is delish!


Molly July 22, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Once again another amazing recipe! Can’t wait to give it a try. Happy Friday :)


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table July 22, 2011 at 1:04 pm

I’m loving all the blueberries on blogs lately! The way they bake is perfect – love the burst when they warm.

My latest obsession is FoodSpotting!


Bonnie July 22, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Wow…ALL those blueberry recipes look amazing! My husband and I love fresh blueberries – pretty sure he’d dig all those recipes too. ;)

It’s funny you’d mention Kickstarter, because we actually just started a project on there! It’s a great website and a great idea and we are proud to be involved in something that takes us to that site. Please check it out if you get the chance!

Have a *blue* weekend! ;)


Jennifer Baldwin July 22, 2011 at 1:23 pm

I am dying to make your overnight oatmeal…just made my 3rd batch of groats…haven’t gotten tired of them yet !
Here is a similar recipe to your blueberry bars I made recently… “Blueberry breakfast cobbler”
I am going to add chia seeds to them next time…great idea !!!


Abby White July 22, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Hello Angela: Those bars love delicious!! I am off to the Oregon Berry Festival and now have a reason to buy LOTS of berries. Have a great weekend.


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 22, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Oh yea baby those bars look amazing!! I have a recipe for a microwave banana blueberry oat cake that I repost quite often. Very similar to what you did, except all in the microwave in single serving portions. Sometimes I add chia seeds, sometimes not. Vegan and GF though. I love the looks of your bars b/c there are blueberrries EVERYWHERE! Nothing worse than bb themed baked goods that are stingy on the bb’s!

What websites are you loving lately? = well I already am following you on pinterest even tho I havent done anything w/ my own boards! lol

I am loving instagram (the iphone app) and then post all my pics to twitter and FB. Not really a website but it’s life changing. Truly I love it!

And also photography blogs and sites. I read enough food blogs. It’s all about the photography stuff now :)


Christine (The Raw Project) July 22, 2011 at 2:43 pm

Just wow, these bars look fabulous! And perfect to pack for a hike, yum. Thanks for the links, I’m loving Instagram, photography, straightening my hair, and running lately.


Eat Hike Sleep Repeat July 22, 2011 at 2:53 pm

I’m addicted to blueberries, so this recipe is right up my alley! I always add too many blueberries to muffins, but you can totally overload this recipe!

For my brain:
For my body:
For photographic inspiration:


Stephanie July 22, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Haha I totally get what you mean by being able to eat your weight in blueberries. They’re sooo good.


Kaitlin @ Montgomery Minimalist July 22, 2011 at 5:32 pm

I went blueberry picking last week, and came home with 2 gallons of them. I didn’t know what we’d do with them, but we’ve been eating them by the handful… I need to make some of these bars before our berries disappear!


Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit July 22, 2011 at 5:41 pm

haha your post reminded me of that song… “I’m blue dabadedabida” The bars look great!


Arielle (Your Vegan Girlfriend) July 22, 2011 at 6:10 pm

YES YES YES – these squares have all of my fav ingredients like chia, coconut oil and almonds! And thank you so much for sharing those websites. Pinterest is so rad! I had no idea it existed. Happy Friday!!


tea-bag July 22, 2011 at 6:47 pm

oh i’m going to make these for my g’parents except w/ bananas!


Lauren-Rose Burke July 22, 2011 at 7:21 pm

Absolutely delicious! I think my ‘cut into 12’ became ‘eat whole’ soon after I sampled… Thank you Angela! :)


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 23, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Glad you enjoyed them!


Kelly July 22, 2011 at 7:35 pm

Angela, do you sell these? I want to try your Glo Bars but they are never in stock.


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 22, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Yay I’m so excited that it’s finally blueberry season! This summer I’ve been relying on my job at the farm to score free berries… but we don’t grow blueberries at Hutchinson farm. I’ll have to get my coworkers to pick up a few pints for me from another vendor when they go to market tomorrow. :D

These bars look amazing. I love the tastes of cooked, gooey blueberries!


[email protected] July 22, 2011 at 8:14 pm

I’ve posted your stuff on pinterest before! :D And these look out of this world….


Lisa July 22, 2011 at 8:23 pm

That’s so funny Angela — my friend made a delicious blueberry oatmeal square last week and our kids loved it (which we were thrilled about because it has 3 cups of oats in it!) I found the recipe on-line (it was from “C is for Cooking”, a Sesame Street Cookbook) and made them this morning. While I was making them with white flour and white sugar, I was thinking to myself, ‘I bet these would be just as delicious if they were made with healthier ingredients.’ I thought to myself that Angela from Oh She Glows would be able to work her magic with this recipe and make it much healthier. I even considered e-mailing you the recipe to see if you had time to tweek it. So imagine my surprise when I read your blog tonight! Thanks! I can’t wait to try the recipe! Keep on glowin’!


Katherine July 22, 2011 at 9:00 pm

I can’t wait till I get my chai seeds in!
Have you ever tried the plain, chai soaked in water/milk for a pudding of sorts?


kaila @ healthy helper! July 22, 2011 at 9:48 pm

I wouldn’t mind turning blue if it meant eating wonderful food like this!


Katrina July 22, 2011 at 11:33 pm

These look so healthy! Great recipe :)


Kari @ bite-sized thoughts July 23, 2011 at 12:42 am

I don’t think you can ever have too many berries :) And those squares look like a fantastic way to use them up. Yum!

With the exchange rate being quite good in Australia at the moment, international shopping sites with free postage are proving quite attractive :P


Nicola July 23, 2011 at 3:16 am

Those blueberry squares look awesome. Going to try tomorrow, but with frozen berries as it’s winter here.
Some websites I’m loving are : for healthy eating inspiration, for making online inspiration boards and for keeping track of my runs


Lauren @ What Lauren Likes July 23, 2011 at 6:25 am

these also remind me of your strawberry oat bars! *drool* one of my favefave recipes! I know this one is going to be another fave for sure :) I am loving popsicles and ice cream right now in all this HEAT!


Jacquelynn July 23, 2011 at 10:07 am

Would there be any other flours that would work besides oat flour? I am going to the store today to try and make these bars… yummy!


Brittany @ B Out There July 27, 2011 at 10:35 am

Spelt worked perfectly for me!


michelle July 23, 2011 at 10:49 pm

This made me laugh because I drag my husband to the farmers market every sunday and each time he tries to warn me against buying more than we can eat. I never buy too much especially when it comes to berries!


Carly - (Getting) Fit Family Robinson July 24, 2011 at 8:57 am

These look awesome Angela. I think I will have to make them this week :)


Radha July 24, 2011 at 10:46 am

I made these and and they came out a crumbly mess :( Taste good. Not realy sure what I will do with it. Sprinkle it on iced cream or fruit. I really did follow the directions. :(


Kerry July 25, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Hi Radha,

I tired these as well and my batch also crumbled apart. I read that rice syrup holds granola together better than the honey/agave mix I used. But, it does taste good in milk for breakfast…


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 26, 2011 at 6:34 am

Sorry yours turned out crumbly! I’m not sure why that would have happened as mine weren’t crumbly at all. Did you use a different sweetener? Also they need to be cooled completely before cutting (probably 45 mins)


Heather McClees July 24, 2011 at 1:21 pm

Hi Angela,

I just wanted to tell you thank you for all of the wonderful support you’ve given me, without even knowing it the past year of my life. Against all odds and other’s opinions about living an alternative diet lifestyle, I’ve read your posts about your story, your struggles, and been able to identify many of my own, and still pursue my passion for blogging. THANK YOU. Great recipe by the way!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 26, 2011 at 6:33 am

Thank you heather!


Laura July 24, 2011 at 4:40 pm

I made this last night – so delicious! They’re very crumbly though. The friends I shared it with enjoyed it as well. Thank you!


Living, Learning, Eating July 24, 2011 at 5:50 pm

I. Love. Blueberries. <3


Beth July 25, 2011 at 3:56 pm

These are amazing! I got some organic blueberries (rare find here) and made them yesterday. My husband loves them!


Savina July 26, 2011 at 8:46 am

I made the chia blueberry bars and they are delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I’m hoping to get into the habit of making these sorts of things rather then buying granola bars. Thanks again for the inspiration.


Annie July 26, 2011 at 10:13 am

Mine turned out PERFECT :) I added mango to the blueberries, and it’s just scrumptious! Thanks, Angela!


melissa July 26, 2011 at 10:19 pm

these may be the best things i’ve ever eaten – thanks so much for sharing!!


Brittany @ B Out There July 27, 2011 at 10:33 am

Just made these with fresh BC Cherries as a sub. Wowzers. Awesomazing. I subbed spelt for oat flour, a little less agave for Brown Rice syrup, and pitted and sliced cherries for blueberries and they held together perfectly. For dessert. And then breakfast. Likely breakfast-ssert. Yum.


Julie July 27, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Hi Angela,

I have Hemp seeds at home, would it works as a sub for the Chia seeds?



Jackie July 28, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Angela, I made these bars today and for some reason they didn’t hold together. I made one change which was to sub the oat flour with Buckwheat flour. Do you think that could be the reason? Otherwise I checked and double checked that I followed the directions and I just can’t figure it out. Fortunately I think it will make great granola :) Thanks for the recipe!


Meredith August 3, 2011 at 6:06 am

I made these bars last night and what a delicious treat for breakfast this morning! But it looks like I’m running into the same problem as a few others who have commented here – many of the bars are a crumbly mess! Any suggestions Angela to make them hold together better?


Meredith August 3, 2011 at 6:08 am

I wanted to add – even when I was putting the “batter” into the pan I had my doubts that it was going to hold together well as the batter was very dry and bally. I looked like I was missing something – something to make it more moist – but I double checked the recipe and I was following it to a tee!


Laura June 4, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Hello! I just love your website, thanks for posting all these yummy recipes! I just wanted to let others know that I’ve used gluten free oats and flour and agave instead of some of the above ingredients and it works great too. Also since it’s not always blueberry season, we freeze blueberries when they’re in season and use the frozen ones folded in. They fold in easily and just add an extra five min cook time. Thanks again for a great blog!


Christy September 24, 2012 at 6:32 pm

This is the bomb! My friends and I get together a few times a month to cook for the week ahead and try to do new stuff every time….but I think this one will be a repeat!


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 25, 2012 at 7:46 am

Aw thank you that makes me happy!!


Julie January 20, 2013 at 6:17 pm

I made these and just changed a few things because I had to go with what I had on hand and was too lazy to go to the grocery store. They still turned out awesome!! I want to try them again by the original recipe though.

Substituted oat flour for all purpose
Used frozen mixed berries instead of blueberries
Substituted maple syrup for rice syrup
Substituted apple butter for nut butter
Substituted pecans for almonds
Aand I threw in some shredded coconut just because I like it.



Sarah February 5, 2013 at 10:01 pm

These are so delish! Just made a batch. Used frozen mixed berries and agave. Didnt have any trouble with crumbling!


Allyson April 6, 2013 at 2:30 am

This is a great recipe. I found the batter a little dry, so I added one mashed banana and it worked great. I also used strawberries instead of blueberries b/c that’s what I had on hand – delicious. The almond extract really works.


Sara May 26, 2013 at 11:38 pm

I just made these and they were delicious!!!


Sarah July 14, 2013 at 12:21 pm

These are yummy but a little dense? I will try a tsp. of baking powder maybe next time. It seems very similar to your other recipe (which I LOVE) of oatmeal squares.Thanks again! LOVE your site.


Kathryn September 16, 2013 at 11:34 pm

Just tried a slice fresh out of the pan — these are wonderful! I did make the following modifications, mainly to use what I had on hand: instead of sucanat/brown sugar, I diced up a handful of dates; instead of applesauce and in the hopes of the bars sticking together well, I used one and a half very ripe bananas; maple syrup in the place of rice syrup; and I replaced the chia seeds with ground flax. Also added a tsp of baking powder based on a previous review. Hearty, sweet like I was looking for. These will be great on-the-go energy boosts. Thanks Angela, I love the way cook!
