Peanut Butter Oat Bars

The best way to reboot your health routine is to plan ahead. If you’re guilty of reaching for chocolates after dinner, make these healthy peanut butter oat bars and stash them in your freezer. Break off a little after dinner and enjoy something sweet – without the guilt. They are dairy-free, vegan wholefoods goodness with just four ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. The addition of inulin gives them a nice fibre boost. Inulin is a type of soluble fibre that functions as a prebiotic in your gut – a food source for the beneficial bacteria that live there. You can add inulin to your morning oats or in raw snack bars like these scrumptious peanut butter oat bars. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Dairy Free / Vegan 

Makes 8-10 bars

1.5 cups medjool dates, pitted

1 cup peanut butter (100% pure)

1 cup rolled oats

2 tbs inulin

Line a slice tin with baking paper.

Soak dates in warm water for about 10 minutes and then drain well. Squeeze out any excess water.

Put dates in a blender and blend until the mix forms a paste.

Add oats, peanut butter and inulin to blender and keep blending until crumbly.

Pour in ¼ cup water a little at a time or until the mix forms a fudgey ball.

Press the mix into the lined slice tray until smooth and even on top.

Pop in the freezer for an hour.

Take out of the freezer and cut into 8-10 bars (depending on how thick you like them).

Place the bars in an airtight container with baking paper between any layers and pop in the fridge or back in the freezer.

(They will keep well in the fridge for two weeks and in the freezer for two months.)

Enjoy!
