Energy bar – oats, nuts, chia, fruit






I’ve tried making a variety of energy bars and find this combination to be one of the best; tasty, moist, healthy and doesn’t fall apart in your rucksack. The honey, nut butter and oats are the mainstay, but the almonds and cranberries can easily be substituted for other nuts and dried fruit. The chia seeds provide the omega-3 and protein, and the cacao nibs provide a chocolate flavour.


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter/ any nut butter
  • 1-2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp dessicated coconut
  • I handful almonds or other nuts
  • 1 handful cacao nibs
  • I handful cranberries
  • 1.5 cup oats
  • 1/2 apple – chopped
  • dark chocolate for drizzling


  1. Heat the honey and nut butter in a saucepan until melted and mix together
  2. Blend the other ingredients in a food processor (except dark chocolate)
  3. Add the honey/ nut butter mixture to a bowl with the oats/nuts/seeds/fruit mix
  4. Spread the mixture evenly into a shallow baking tray and place in freezer for 20mins
  5. Take out and chop into bars
  6. Drizzle with melted dark chocolate
