Cuisine: healthy snack, pre-workout snack
This is a great ‘sugar free’ granola bar option as I use a natural sweetener called rice malt syrup to replace processed sugars.
150g of rolled oats (use GF oats if preferred)
2 tbsp of desiccated coconut
1 tbsp spoon of pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp of sunflower seeds
1 tbsp of milled/ ground flax seeds
(or use 3 tbsp of my Omega Mix)
3 pitted dates, cut into small pieces – or replace with your favourite dried fruit
1 tbsp of cacao nibs (can be omitted or placed with chocolate chips)
3 tbsp of rice malt syrup
5 tbsp spoons of coconut oil
Preheat the oven to 150.
Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until all the ingredients are combined.
Lined and grease a baking tray and pour in the mixture.
Lightly pat the mixture with the back of a spoon until evenly spread across the tray.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray.
Once cool cut into bars and wrap individually for an on-the-go high-energy snack.
*Rice malt syrup is a complex carbohydrate blend of glucose and maltose, which is completely fructose-free.
This is what I used in this recipe:
