Healthy chocolate energy bars

If you’ve tried my peanut butter energy bars, then you’re gonna love these chocolate energy bars.

They’re really just a slight variation of the original recipe and I love them both!

I use Goji berries in these, but you can use any dried fruit you like really.

These chocolate energy bars are a fabulous post workout snack

As you may already know, they’re my favourite go-to, pre gym brekkie.

They’re also fabulous as a post workout snack, especially if you need something quick and nutritious to refuel your energy stores.

I suggest keeping them in a container in the freezer, so you can just grab one whenever you like.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups almond meal
  • ½ cup flax seed
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp of natural peanut butter
  • 16 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp Goji berries
  • 2 tbsp boiling water

Instructions

  • Line a slice tin with baking paper.
  • Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor, except the boiling water, until well combined and the mixture forms crumbs. Make sure the dates and oats are finely processed.
  • Slowly add the boiling water until the mixture clumps together; you may need a little bit more than the 2 tablespoons, I find I do if my measuring isn’t spot on!
  • Pour the mixture into the slice tin and press it down firmly and evenly.
  • Allow it to set in the freezer for an hour or two before cutting into bars.
