No Bake Chocolate and Cherry Granola Bars
These no bake granola bars are the perfect no fuss treat!
Serves 12|Takes 25 minutes
130g Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats
190g dates, stoned
200g toasted blanched hazelnuts
100g dried sour cherries
60g dark chocolate buttons, roughly chopped
100g almond butter
80ml maple syrup
30g ground flaxseed
Line a 20cm square loose bottom brownie tin with baking parchment.
In a small saucepan, gently warm the maple syrup and almond butter until smooth and combined.
Meanwhile, tip half the hazelnuts into a food processor and process until finely ground. Add to a large mixing bowl with the oats. Then, roughly chop the remaining hazelnuts and add these into the mixing bowl.
Add the dates to the food processor and process until finely chopped and they come together into one ball. Then, add these, the maple syrup and peanut butter to the mixing bowl, along with the remaining ingredients. Stir and, once combined, use your hands to bring the mixture together.
Tip the mixture into your prepared tin and press into an even layer using the back of a spoon. Chill in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, before slicing into bars. Enjoy!
