Delicious nutritious home-made energy bars are WAY better than shop-bought, and are packed full of health-boosting ingredients including antioxidants & phytonutrients, healthy fats, and energy-boosting foods. They are super easy to make, no baking required, and they keep well in the fridge or freezer so you'll always have a great chocolatey healthy treat to hand when you need it. They are great for pre or post workout, for after yoga, taking out on hikes etc as a real boost to keep your energy levels balanced. Vegan & gluten free, and only natural sugars. You'll need a good quality food processor for this recipe.
350g medjool dates (take out the stones)
1/3 cup raw cacao
75g chia seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened desicated coconut
50g oats (use gluten free if you need to)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp pink salt / sea salt
70g chopped high % dark chocolate (the higher %, the lower the sugar)
Blitz the dates in a food processor until they form a paste. Add walnuts, and blitz to combine. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until they form a thick dough. Line a baking tray with parchment / baking paper, then press the mixture firmly into a square / rectangle. Place in the freezer for at least a few hours to firm the mixture, then you can cut into bars and either store in the freezer or fridge.
