Happy Monday!! I hope you’re enjoying the good weather (not today tho), I definately am!
Today I’m bringing you a new delicious, yet healthy recipe 🙂 As you may know, I’m always on the run and I often find myself getting an energy bar between breaks. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of vegan natural bar brands that I adore but also some of this brands can be a little bit expensive and some of them are packed with oil, salt and preservatives… I thought, why not make my own energy bars? If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know about my “energy balls recipe” and how much I love them, but this time, I wanted to try something different.
I came up with a super low fat Flapjack Energy Bar recipe and guys: I’m in love. I already ate like half of them since I made this recipe (about 3 days ago).
For this deliciousness you will need:
– 1 1/2 CUP of organic oats
- 1 TBSP goji berries
- 1 TBSP organic cocoa powder
- 200gr organic medjool dates (about 12 dates)
- 1 TBSP chia seeds (I get mine from GRAZE –> click here to buy)
- 3 TBSP soy milk or oat milk (I only had soy in the fridge so that’s what I used)
On a bowl add your TBSP of chia seeds and 3 TBSP of water, mix well and leave a side for about 5 min. The water will make the chia grow and for a thick gooey paste, we will use this as our “egg” to make sure everything sticks together. Did you know Chia Seeds are super rich in Omega? 🙂
Next, dip your medjool dates and goji berries in a cup with warm water and leave them for a bit so they hydrate and are easier to blend. After a few minutes, rinse your dates and goji berries and blend on a food processor with 3TBSP of soy milk, until you get a creamy thick paste like this one:
On a rectangular container (make sure you can put it in the freezer) you will put some parchment paper and add your mixture. Then you will spread it until it’s all compact and uniform. I recommend you leave about 1,5cm of thickeness. Freeze overnight.
What I like to do is wrap them in individual packages so I can take them with me on the go or give them as a gift so someone 🙂 For the packages I used parchment paper and some hemp cord (which you can re-use afterwards if it doesn’t get messy).
I hope you give this recipe a try and please let me know in the comments below if you have any questions, or just to say if you liked it! See you soon in another post!
Have an awesome week! 🙂
