Almond crunch bars

Almond crunch bars

If you need a snack to keep you going during the day, I would highly recommend these delicious almond crunch bars instead! You can make them at the start of the week and keep in the fridge so you have a healthy and satisfying snack waiting there when you need it! Also does nicely as an after dinner treat!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup pitted medjoul dates
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the almonds and oats onto a roasting dish and roast in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown, watching closely to make sure they don’t burn.
  3. While the almonds and oats are roasting, whizz the dates in a food processor for a minute until they form a paste (may stick together in a big ball as they are so sticky – this is perfectly fine).
  4. Melt the honey and almond butter in a pot and add the date paste, stirring until it forms a thick smooth paste.
  5. Roughly chop the almonds and oats and add them to the mixture. Add a pinch of salt and mix well.
  6. Pour the mixture into a small tray lined with baking parchment and smooth down. I find using anothe piece of parchment to push down in the mixture is easiest and makes sure you don’t end up with sticky hands!
  7. When the mixture has been smoothed into the tray, place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
  8. While the bars are setting, melt 100g of dark chocolate.
  9. Remove the mixture from the freezer and pour over the dark chocolate, spreading it around evenly with the back of a spoon.
  10. Return to the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
  11. Cut into small bars and store in a container in the fridge.
