Two Ingredient energy bars
You can’t go wrong with these two ingredient energy bars. No cooking, no baking and perfect for the lunchbox.

450g pitted dates

270g rolled oats + extra for coating

Line a 17 x 27cm baking tin with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Place the dates into a food processor and blitz until it has a jam-like consistency.

You can add one tablespoon or two of hot water to achieve this if the dates are very dry.

Add the oats slowly until they are all in stirring each time you add more and the mix starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Press the mixture into the baking tin.

Sprinkle the top with extra oats and freeze for 1-2 hours.

Cut into fingers and roll in extra oats to coat.

Wrap individual fingers in baking paper and store in an airtight container.
