Raw Energy Bars

Apologies for our slackness at updating the blog, both of us have been busy recently with uni and work commitments. Next week we have 2 weeks of mid semester break so we are really keen to get busy in the kitchen.

Recently I have gotten into the bad habbit of buying muesli slice at uni along with my morning coffee. Although it is delicious, it’s full of butter and sugar so I decided to try making my own. I have made this slice now a number of times and it is the perfect morning-snack, super easy to make and is very healthy (raw, vegan, free from refined-sugar, gluten-free).

1 cup Almonds

1/2 cup Pitted Dates (soak in boiling water to soften them up)

1/3 cup Peanut Butter (or any nut butter)

1/3 cup Goji Berries

2 tablespoons Chia Seeds

1 tablespoon honey (or use Agave Syrup to make them Vegan)

To top:

Coconut Threads

Handful of Cranberries

To make:

  1. Grind the almonds in a food processor for about 30 seconds
  2. Add the dates and mix (I also like to add dried apricots, feel free to experiment with different dried fruits)
  3. Add peanut butter, goji berries, chia seeds and honey
  4. Line a baking tray with baking paper and press the mixture in. Ideally you want it to be about 1cm thick
  5. Sprinkle over cocoanut threads and cranberries, make sure you press the cranberries into the mixture to make them stick
  6. Leave in the fridge for an hour before cutting into barsIMG_6581 IMG_6582
