Homemade snack bar

April 15, 2010 at 12:28 Leave a comment

Sometimes I really like to have a snack bar with me, if I know that I’m going to need great fuel for exercise later in the day, or if I need some extra fibers or food during the day. As I think it is very expensive to buy such bars and that it can be difficult here in Denmark, to find bars without excess sugar, I make my own.

Today I made oat and date bars with hazelnut, cacao nibs, flax seed and vanilla.

Oat bars (12 bars/servings)
16 fresh, pitted dates
100 g oats
2 tbsp flax seed
3 tbsp raw cacao nibs
100 g hazelnut butter
4 tsp coconut oil
Pinch of pure vanilla powder

Blend dates into a coarse paste. Mix with remaining ingredients. Shape into bars and put in the oven at 150 degrees for 10 minutes if desired, followed by putting them in the freezer. Otherwise just pop in the freezer. Wrap in cling film and store in fridge.
