You don’t have to bake these bars with dates, peanut butter and coconut for extra energy, they are super healthy, sweet and filling, and can be made in 5 minutes!
For about 6 large bars:
- 20 fresh dates, pitted
- 4 tablespoons coconut grater
- 2 tablespoons coconut butter*
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 4 tablespoons oatmeal
- A (preferably square or rectangular) shape
- baking paper
* Coconut butter (or coconut oil, exactly the same, but softened) is for sale at toko’s, health food stores such as De Tuinen and eco-supermarkets such as Marqt and Ekoplaza. We used the coconut cream from Royal Green .
Place all ingredients in a food processor. Mix at intervals for about 30 seconds at a time until it is a nice thick, sticky mixture. It should be easy to stir, but not too runny. If it is too runny, add extra oatmeal. If it is a bit too thick, add some extra coconut butter or peanut butter.
Place baking paper in a mold and spoon the mixture on it. Place a second sheet of baking paper on top and press with a different mould, for example a plastic container that fits exactly in the mould.
Place in the fridge, preferably with a weight on it, for example a can of soda or a jar of mayonnaise. Leave in the fridge for at least an hour, but longer is of course also possible – then the bars will become even firmer.
Then you can cut into nice bars or squares. We took out about 6 large bars, but if you cut smaller shapes, you have more copies.
These energy bars keep well in the fridge for several weeks and even three months in the freezer. Note: you cannot leave these in your bag all day, because then they will become too soft.
