Ingredients

  • 2 cups (185g) rolled oats
  • ½ cup (75g) almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup (60g) pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup (60g) sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp. flaxseeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional) (buy here www.shopelitelivingnutrition.com)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cup (230ml) maple syrup
  • 6 Medjool dates, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 8-inch (20cm) square baking pan with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, seeds and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small pot combine the maple syrup and dates. Place the pot on the stove and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 10 minutes until the dates have softened and the syrup has thickened slightly.
  4. Remove the dates from the heat and mix in coconut oil, mash the dates with a fork. Add the date syrup to the oat mixture and stir well until combined. Transfer the mixture into the baking pan and firmly press into the base.
  5. Place the pan in the oven and bake until firm and browned, around 45-50 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes, then remove the bars from the pan, place on a wire rack and set aside to cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, cut into bars, place in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days.
