Granola bars

What will this recipe make?

These are great energy bars. Goji berries are the most nutritionally dense fruit. Flaxseeds are high in Omega-3 fats and dietary fibre.

Whose recipe is this?

Lise Matthews
180g porridge oats 3 tbsp ground flax seeds 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds 1 tbsp goji berries 2 tbsp chopped dates 1 tbsp chopped figs 2 tbsp coconut oil 2 tbsp peanut butter (a good quality one without added salt or sugar) 1 tbsp honey (optional)
Melt the honey, coconut oil, and peanut butter together in a pan. Stir in all other ingredients and mix well to form a sticky mixture. If you find the mixture a little too sticky, you can add more oats to firm it up a little. This will make slightly crumblier bars though. Press the mixture firmly into a greased baking tin (about 8 inches x 8 inches should be big enough). Place the tin at the top of a hot oven (200c/gas9) for 10 – 15 minutes, until gold brown. Allow cooling fully before cutting into bars.

Chocolate and coconut together is just heaven. And the consistency of this mousse is simply perfect once it has set. You can choose to sprinke with chopped chocolate, toasted coconut flakes or a few berries but it’s also great just as it is.
