INGREDIENTS:

– 180g oats

– 230g pitted medjool dates

– 2 scoops vanilla (or plain) protein powder

– 1 tablespoon raw cacao

– 1 tablespoon tahini

– 1/4 cup coconut oil

– 2 tablespoon raw honey

METHOD:

Blitz 180g oats in a food processor or high powered blender until it almost resembles flour.

Add 230g pitted medjool dates, 2 scoops vanilla (or plain) protein powder, 1 tablespoon raw cacao, (or instead you could just use chocolate protein powder), 1 tablespoon tahini, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 coconut oil (in liquid form), 2 tablespoon raw honey.

Blitz together in the food processor or blender until the mix comes together like a dough and can be pressed together between your fingers without sticking. Otherwise add more water or oats to make more or less sticky.

Push into a lined container and place in the freezer for a couple of hours before slicing into bars.

Note: If you like you can also top your bars with cacao nibs, caramelised buckwheat (buckinis) or chia seeds for an extra crunch!
