Ingredients
  • 200g Whitworths Stoned Soft Sayer Dates
  • 75g Whitworths Flaked Almonds
  • 75g no-added-sugar crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 25g chia seeds
  • 150g porridge oats
Method
  • Put the dates into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to sit for 5 mins, or until softened.

  • Pulse the flaked almonds in a food processor until roughly chopped. Drain the dates and add to the food processor along with the peanut butter and cinnamon. Pulse until sticky and combined, adding a splash of water if needed.

  • Tip in the chia seeds and porridge oats, pulsing a few times until coated with the date mixture.

  • Scoop the mixture into a lined, 21cm-square baking tray. Press down gently with the back of a spoon to smooth.

  • Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins or overnight.

  • Cut into 12 bars to serve. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
