No Bake Granola Bars

Lockdown Continues in Srilanka…

As you know this means everyone’s home and everyone’s hungry : also bored which makes them reach out to what ever is convenient and available

As a mom I truly feel responsible

I made these insanely healthy granola bars with just 5 ingredients and ofcourse I had to personalize it using @vlfresh dehydrated fruit snacks

Watch the full video to see the easy steps to making this deliciousness.Check my instagram post for the IGTV Video.Link is attached below :

Let’s Get Started

You Will Need

  • 1.5 Cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 2 Cups Medjool Dates
  • 1/4 Cup All Natural Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Nut Butter
  • 1 Cup Raw Almonds
  • 1 Cup VL Fresh Dried Fruit Cocktail

Recipe for all natural nut butter is available in the blog site : Refer to link attached below

Step One
I like the almonds and rolled oats toasted but you could add them in raw just like that.Skip this step if it doesn’t suit your preference

Step Two
Remove seeds off the dates
And blitz in food processor till it gets blended into a paste
My mixture literally turned into a sticky ball of mashed dates

Step Three
Add VL Fresh dried fruit cocktail

Step Four
Add toasted almonds

Scrape down the edges using a rubber spatula and pulse in between to get the perfect consistency

That’s Perfect

Transfer to a bowl and Set this mixture aside

Step Five
In a small saucepan,combine maple syrup and nut butter.Keep on medium heat and mix till well combined.

You could use any kind of nut butter if you don’t have almond butter but ofcourse flavour would be slightly different with each kind of nut.
You could replace maple syrup with original Kithul Treacle or Honey

Step Six
Add the Warm nut butter and maple syrup mixture into the date mixture

Step Seven
Add rolled oats in

Step Eight
Combine well into a doughy consistency using clean fingers

Use oil if necessary

Step Nine
Transfer to a lined 8” by 8” tray
2cm thickness

Press well using your oiled fingers and even the mixture out.

Let this rest for few minutes

Time to slice these bad boys

I rolled out a few into bite sized balls perfect for quick snacks from the remaining mixture
So easy to make yet so deliciously healthy

Would love to see your remakes on this deliciousness
