energy bar

These are so delicious and easy to make and are perfect for lunch boxes or a little something during the day to pickup your energy levels. They store well and are a whole lot cheaper than buying them.
What you need

2 1/2 cups jungle oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour
pinch of baking soda
1/2 cup chopped raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt
125ml cup honey
125ml sunflower oil
7.5ml vanilla essence
1/2 cup nuts of your choice chopped
30g butter or margarine

The process

Grease a baking tray that is lined with tin foil, with the butter or margarine.

Mix all of the ingredients together in no particular order, just ensure that they are well combined.

Pour onto the lined and greased baking ray and press down firmly. You can use a bottle or the base of a cup.

Place in a 200 Celsius oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the edges are beginning to darken.

remove from the oven, let them cool and then turn them out and cut into blocks.

A whole lot cheaper than picking them up at the gym or health shop.

    Hi Graham

    So if I wanted to add more nuts, I could without worrying that I might mess up the recipe? And can I use golden syrup instead of honey like we do in crunchies?

    • Graham says:

      Hi Renz, Adding more nuts won’t be an issue, just keep the total volumes similar. Never tried with syrup… I imagine as long as the syrup you use is a similar consistency to honey you will be OK. Cheers for now G
