Sticky Banana, Tahini & Walnut Bars

Sticky banana, tahini and walnut bars – speedy to make and they taste so good! Another variant of my classic banana bar recipe – but I thought still worth posting – just too good not to.

Packed with lovely middle eastern flavours with the tahini, dates and sesame seeds and then topped with sliced bananas which go all sticky and gooey and then drizzle with some maple for added stickiness! Yum.

You can make them gluten free by using gluten free oats they are absolutely perfect for breakfast or pudding!

I hope you enjoy

Much love, Niki xxx
