Oatmeal,chia and cacao raw energy bars
Looking for a recipe for some really quick and easy 5 ingredient raw energy snack? They are gluten free (optional) have a really healthy dose of protein and provide you with that slow release sustained energy with a hint of sweetness that makes this an awesome treat and snack.
It also requires very little washing up afterwards which means more time for all the other stuff you would rather be doing.
So, grab a mixing bowl and pour the oats straight in and then basically dumb all the other ingredients on top and start mixing. Make sure you blend everything really well, I often get my hands in there to knead it all together. I use a nice rectangular shaped tupperware to shape the bars and store them all in the same place. But you can use a baking tin. Pour the mixed ingredients into you baking tray and press the ingredients into each corner and flatten it down on the top.
Chill for an hour in the fridge. Remove from the tray and slice into bar shaped slices.
These keep in the fridge very well for up to 2 weeks, however they probably wont last that long.
Easy to pack and transport.
2 cups of oats (I used gluten free) 3 large tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter(you can use smooth but the crunchy is nice for extra texture) 2 tablespoons of agave syrup (honey is a good option if you don’t have agave,less or more depending how sweet you like it) 4 cacao beans-morter and pestel to ground them into cacao nibs. 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
