Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal, Dates And Assorted Nuts Energy Bars

Ingredients to make Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal, Dates And Assorted Nuts Energy Bars

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 packed cup pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup good quality honey (or agave syrup)
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (or almond/ cashew butter)
  • 1 cup raw or toasted mixed nuts (I used almonds, pistachios and pecans)

How to make Healthy No-Bake Oatmeal, Dates And Assorted Nuts Energy Bars

  1. Chop the assorted nuts and keep aside.
  2. Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain (this may take about 1 minute or so). It should form a “dough” like consistency and will roll into a ball.
  3. Dry roast or toast the rolled oats in a non-stick pan for a few minutes until the color has change to a light brown. Take care not to burn the oats.
  4. Place the oats, chopped nuts and dates in a bowl and set aside.
  5. In a small saucepan, warm honey and peanut butter over low heat. Stir and pour over the oats mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates till well combined.
  6. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to a dish/ pan lined with aluminium foil/ parchment paper so they lift out easily. Press down until uniformly flattened.
  7. Cover with aluminium foil/ parchment paper or plastic wrap, and let it set in the refrigerator or freezer for 25 to 30 minutes to harden.
  8. Remove the set bar from the dish and chop into even bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. These stay well.

My Tip:

I used home-made peanut butter and not store-bought to make it a completely healthy snack free of any preservatives. But you could use store-bought ones too.
