Health Protein Bars - Start Sprouting!

These healthy protein bars are my favourite and so yummy! Make a batch of them on the weekend and you'll have a healthy snack ready for you all week.

They contain enough seeds to make you start sprouting, this Spring!


Ingredients

  • 250g/9oz medjool dates

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 75g/2½oz goji berries

  • 75g/2½oz pumpkin seeds

  • 150g/5½oz brown flaxseeds

  • 50g/1¾oz cocoa nibs

  • 25g/1oz chia seeds

  • 25g/1oz cornflakes (gluten-free if required)

  • 100g/3½oz organic porridge oats (not instant), gluten-free if required)


Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4, and line the bottom and sides of a 20cm/8in square tin with baking parchment.

  2. Pit the dates and tear them with your fingers into a small saucepan, add the cinnamon, cover with 325ml/11fl oz cold water, bring to the boil and let bubble for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, and beat with a fork until you have a rough purée.

  3. Put all the remaining ingredients into a large bowl, add the date mixture and mix until everything is combined. I wear a pair of disposable vinyl gloves for this.

  4. Squodge into your prepared tin and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until firm and set, and golden on top and darker around the edges. Leave to cool in the tin before cutting into pieces.

Remember that the sweetness that comes from the dates is, in essence, sugar, though certainly it’s unprocessed and full of fibre at the same time.
