Date and oat protein power bar

Posted by Joe Wicks - 459 Days Ago in: Recipes

I'm all about having a little treat now and again and these power bars won't disappoint. Be careful, though, they taste incredible so don't be tempted to smash the whole lot in one go.

 

INGREDIENTS 


150g pitted dates 

2 tbsp cocoa powder 

2 scoops (60g) chocolate protein powder  (click here to read about what protein powder I use)

90g porridge oats 

40g coconut oil 

40g hazelnuts 

20g peanuts 

75g dark chocolate 

25g pistachios, roughly chopped 

pinch of salt 


METHOD 

Place the dates, cocoa powder, protein powder, porridge oats, coconut oil, hazelnuts and peanuts into a food processor and blitz until smooth. 

If the blade is having trouble, just add a little bit of water to help loosen things up. 

Tip the mixture onto a tray lined with baking parchment and pat down until it is about 2cm thick. 

Melt the chocolate (I do this in quick bursts in the microwave). While still warm, artistically drizzle it over the nutty date base. Sprinkle over the chopped pistachios and the salt. When the chocolate has cooled a little, you’re ready to cut into squares and dig in.
