These bars make a good snack, on busy days I eat them as breakfast on the go!

  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts or add more
  • 8 pitted dates
  • dark chocolate (optional)
  • chopped almonds (optional)


  1. Line a pan with parchment paper, mix oats salt and oil and bake on 200C for 15 mins or until slightly golden.
  2. Blend the dates with nuts until well combined.Add the roasted oats to the dates and nuts making sure to completely incorporate all of the ingredients.
  3. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan (I used the flat bottom of a glass).
  4. Refrigerate for at least an hour to set before cutting into bars.

  • To add chocolate: melt the chocolate and spread it on top of the cut bars, sprinkle with almonds. refrigerate again until chocolate is firm.

Notes: Oats are gluten-free by nature but most are held in facilities that contain gluten. Check the package label if you are concerned with any gluten content.
