Sometimes, a simple fruit is not enough to satisfy your hunger between meals; enter your homemade energy bar. Made with oats, shredded coconut and nut butter, these bars will raise your energy level, without ruining your healthy diet.



Energy Boost Bars


Preparation time: 20 minutes plus 30 minutes refrigeration time
Makes: 5 bars (about 10 centimeters long, 3 centimeters wide and 2 centimeters high)

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cup rolled oats
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup flax seeds, ground
¼ cup snipped dried cranberries
¼ cup sunflower seeds, raw and unsalted
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2/3 cup nut butter (peanut or almond butter)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread the oats in a baking pan and bake for 7-10 minutes, or until light brown. You may want to stir the oats once or twice during the baking time.

You can store the bars in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to 1 week.

Note: You can replace the dried cranberries in the recipe with dried cherries or blueberries. To add a sweeter taste to the bars, add golden raisins instead of berries.
