Prep time: 15 minutes
Setting time: 2 hours or overnight
Ingredients – serves 6
1 cup of Egmont Honey
1 ½ cups oatmeal
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup dried cranberries
1 cup sliced dried apricots
½ cup desiccated coconut
1 drop vanilla essence
For the topping:
1 x cup dark chocolate drops
½ cup peanut butter of your choice
1 tsp coconut oil
- Line your baking tin with greaseproof paper.
- Place all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well to combine.
- Place the butter, honey and vanilla extract in a pan. Cook it until butter and honey melt, and the mixture bubbles on the edges and is slightly foamy in the middle.
- Next, add this liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix very well until combined.
- Put the energy bar mixture onto the lined baking tin. It will be thick and sticky. You can use a spatula or a spoon to spread evenly and press it lightly.
- From there, heat a pan with a little water and place a bowl over it to melt the chocolate in. Add the coconut oil and mix well until silky smooth.
- Warm your peanut butter until it is slightly runny.
- Pour the chocolate mixture over the energy bar mixture.
- Glaze the chocolate with peanut butter.
- Once finished, leave to cool for 10 minutes, then place in the fridge to set.
- Once set, remove from fridge and cut into individual slices. These will last in the fridge for a few days or you can freeze them and grab when needed.
