APRICOT ENERGY BARS

 

DSC_0445.JPGThese energy bars are DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN.

The process is super simple: select your favourite nuts and dried/fresh fruits and process them in a food processor together with some pitted dates, some rolled oats, water and your favourite sweetener. The result should be a sticky mixture, so adjust doses depending on the ingredients you will select.

Here’s the list of ingredients I have selected and the step by step instructions:

  1. Place 4 pitted medjool dates in warm water for 10 minutes, until soften
  2. Place dates in a food processor and mix for about 1 minute: it should form a “dough” like consistency
  3. Add 1 cup rolled oats and mix
  4. Add rest of ingredients: 1/4 cup coconut flakes, 1/4 cup hazelnuts, 1/4 cup almonds,Β 2 tbsp chia seeds, 4 apricots (cut into pieces), 2 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp syrup
  5. Mix and add more water if necessary
  6. Transfer to a baking dish lined with parchment paper and press down until uniformly flattened (use dump hands or a glass)
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, 180 degrees fan
  8. Let cool down and cut into squares
