05 Sep Peanut Butter & Honey Raw Energy Bars
Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 2 hour or overnight Serves: 6
- 1 cup of Egmont Honey
- 1 ½ cups oatmeal
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup sliced dried apricots
- 100g butter
- ½ cup desiccated coconut
- 1 drop vanilla essence
- 1 x cup dark chocolate drops
- ½ cup Forty Thieves Peanut Butter
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Line your baking tin with greaseproof paper.
Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well to combine.
Place the butter, honey and vanilla extract in a pan. Cook it until butter and honey melt, and the mixture bubbles on the edges and is slightly foamy in the middle.
Next, add this liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix very well until combined.
Put the energy bar mixture onto the lined baking tin. It will be thick and sticky. You can use a spatula or a spoon to spread evenly and press it lightly.
From there, heat a pan with a little water and place a bowl over it to melt the chocolate in. Add the coconut oil and mix well until silky smooth.
Warm peanut butter until it is slightly runny.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the energy bar mixture.
Glaze the chocolate with peanut butter.
Once finished, leave to cool for 10 minutes, then place in the fridge to set.
Once set, remove from fridge and cut into individual slices. These will last in the fridge for a few days or you can freeze them and grab when needed.
