Super Tasty Energy Bars

I got this recipe from a friend of mine, and i've made it a lot.. I even made the bars and took them with me when i was training and taking part in an event called Gael Force West.. I didn't take any energy gels.. just a few of these and they kept me going �

  • 1 and 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1 and 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins (chopped dates or sultanas)
  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup (raw honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (nutmeg or cardamon)
  1. Preheat the oven to 135degC
  2. Mix all the ingredients into a large bowl. The mix should be quite sticky
  3. Make sure everything is coated with the mashed banana and syrup

  4. Using wet fingers press the mix into a 7x11" lined baking tray

  5. Bake for 30 mins to 1 hour depending on degree of 'chewiness' required
  6. After allotted time remove from oven and press on wire tray to cool

  7. Cut into slices and store in the fridge

These also freeze well :)
