So what does it take to make the ultimate homemade energy bar?
They need to be packed with protein and contain tons of nutrition, but most of all…they should be delicious, right?
Well…we think we might have mastered just that! These bars are a real winner.
The apricots and maple syrup help glue all the ingredients together, while bringing a lovely sweetness to the bars.
And the combination of raisins, seeds, berries and nuts packs tons of interesting flavours into each bite.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Make sure you blend the apricots into a thick paste. If you’re struggling to reach the correct consistency, add a splash more water.
- Leave the bars to cool fully before slicing them, otherwise they might crumble!
- Press down as much as possible on the mixture in the tin, which will help compact the ingredients so the bars don’t fall apart.
