Easter Oat, Almond & Date Bars
I am excited to share this recipe that does not require baking, needs only 6 simple ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to prepare!
In fact, these bars can be made for any holiday using cookie cutters or simply sliced into squares for every day enjoyment.
1 cup pitted dates (chopped)
1 cup almonds
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup coconut
2 cups oats
½ cup honey
1. Simply place all of the above ingredients in a food processor. 2. Blend for 30-60 seconds or until a sticky ball forms.
3. Place the oat mixture on baking paper. Press the mixture into a thin layer using your hands, or use a rolling pin to flatten the mixture.
4. Simply use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes, or slice into squares with a knife.
And there you go... a healthy Easter snack made in 10 minutes! These are perfect to take for lunch, picnic or for a mid-morning snack. Dates are known as “nature’s candy”. They are also a good source of fibre and vitamins. The almonds help lower bad cholesterol and build strong bones and teeth, while the oats provide energy, nutrients and more fibre! Who knew that such a cute little Bunny bar could pack many health benefits - there are certainly a lot better choices for healthy chocolate on the market today but mainstream commercial chocolate, cheap chocolate is still made with unhealthy ingredients, I hope you give our healthy swap a try , Enjoy ❤️
