Energy Bars

I love these bars. Perfect as a WFH snack to get you through the day, I consistently make again & again! Hope you love them too.

Serves 10 large slices

Cooks in 30+ Minutes


  • 300g oats
  • 300g dried dates
  • 12 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tbsp. cacao powder
  • big pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 80g Dark Chocolate choc melted


  1. In a food processor blend the oats into flour, add the dried dates and blend until the dates are broken into tiny pieces almost not visible (the mix will have turned to a brownish flour colour).
  2. Add the cacao powder, almond milk, salt and vanilla and blend into a thick heavy dough.
  3. Spoon the mix into a lined bread tin and smooth out over the top.
  4. Drizzle over with the melted chocolate.
  5. Place in the freezer (15-20 minutes) or fridge for 45 minutes to set. A tip when cutting into bars. Heat the knife so it slides through the hardened chocolate without cracking it.
