I am not a fan of “energy bars”. They’re often loaded with processed sugar and refined oils, while their nutrient content is boosted using questionable additives. Still, for those that maintain an active lifestyle, I get their appeal. They’re small and packed with protein and carbs, which makes them a dense source of energy to fuel you through the day.
That is why you should always make your own energy bars. By making your own bars, you can guarantee they’re made with good stuff, and you can tailor them to suit your tastes and dietary needs. They are perfect in any way. Wholesome ingredients quick-simple to make, nutritious and delicious. The energy bars are full of vitamins and fibre that will keep you full of energy for the whole day. Here is what you need:
- 1 cup of Dried White Mulberries
- 2 tbsp of Manuka honey
- 1/2 cup nuts ( any, choose your favourite )
- 1 cup of oats
- 2 table spoons of peanut butter ( if you use honey you can skip it and vice versa )
- 1/2 cup of medjool dates
- 1 tbsp of linseed
- pinch of salt
How to make
Whizz them together in a food processor until they combine into a thick paste, press into a square, chill, and chop into squares for snacking. Done.
You can also play around with adding other ingredients into the mix: a few tablespoons of chia seeds, a handful of coconut, even some chocolate chips. Add the extras a bit at a time until you get a taste and texture that you like.
Making energy bars really is that simple. You’ll never need to buy them again.
