This is the perfect fuel for my sports athletes. Good source of energy, without any added refined sugar.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1.5 cups of oats
1/2 cup dates
1 cup prunes
3TBS sunflower seeds
2TBS golden flax seed (or regular linseed)
1TBS coconut oil
*** 1/4 cup peanut butter
*** 1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds
LISA'S TIP: To make these 'nut free' for school lunchboxes, swap the peanut butter for another generous tablespoon of coconut oil and swap the almonds for an extra tablespoon of EACH seed.
WHAT YOU DO:
1. In a food processor or high powered blender, blitz the prunes, dates and coconut oil. This is what makes the bars stick together. It can help to gently heat the prunes, coconut and dates on the stovetop first to soften them.
2. Stir through the peanut butter. You now have a 'sticky' paste to bind it all together.
3. Put oats, seeds and almonds* in a bowl. Tip your cooled 'sticky paste' into the bowl and get your hands in to mix it up!
4. Line a baking tray and spray with a little oil so the bars don't stick. Press the mix into the tray (use your hands) and pop into the fridge to set.
