Ingredients

  • 6 Medjool dates, de-seeded and chopped into small chunks
  • 130g rolled oats (gluten-free if required)
  • 60g nuts of choice (I have used walnuts and pistachios in the ones pictured), roughly chopped
  • 75g coconut oil, melted
  • 30g desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
  • 3 tbsp protein powder (soya bean/ pea/ whey).
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter*
  • 2 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tbsp Matcha green tea powder
  • ½ tsp salt

*Note:
You can use peanut butter, but this imparts a strong peanut flavour, which masks the flavour of the green tea.

Variations:

  • These oat bars work well with other superfood powders like wheatgrass and spirulina, which impart a green colour, or baobab or maca, which are more neutral in colour.
  • Use shredded kale instead of green tea.
  • Substitute green tea for Omega- 3 superpowder or Vitalising superpowder for an extra nutritional boost.
  • Substitute the chia seeds with ground goldenberry and chia power blend.

Method

  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. The oats quickly assume a spring green colour.
  • Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper, greased with a little coconut oil (I used a 16cm X 26cm pan).
  • Transfer the oaty mix into the pan and using a spatula, compress the oaty mix into the tin.
  • Pop in the freezer for 1hr. Transfer onto a chopping board and slice into bars.
  • These bars keep fresh in the fridge for 7-10 days. Enjoy!
