Recipe | Gary’s healthy honey oat bars

A super easy no bake snack


Hands up, who else vowed to eat a bit more healthily as part of their new year’s resolutions? And who’s already getting sugar cravings? Yeah, me too *sobs*. But don’t despair, before you reach for that forbidden chocolate bar, give these healthy honey oat bars a try. They’re packed with filling oats and almonds with sweet honey, cranberries and peanut butter to satisfy even the sweetest tooth. 


You can whip them up in no time (did I mention they’re no bake?) and keep them in the fridge for when you need a pick me up. They have replaced my usual afternoon chocolate snack, which I’m not even missing. The oats make them nice and filling, while the peanut butter and nuts add some protein and healthy fats.

I can’t take the credit for these; they are the boyfriend’s creation after a good browse of other healthy snack recipes. But I thought it was only fair to share the recipe with you, they’re too good to keep to ourselves! Plus to keep things interesting you can alternate the cranberries and pumpkin seeds with any dried fruit and nuts you fancy. 



Ingredients 

Honey 100g
Crunchy low sugar/salt peanut butter 80g
Almonds 60g
Dried cranberries 40g
Pumpkin seeds 30g
Rolled oats 120g


Method

Line a small baking tray or plastic container with greaseproof paper.

Mix the honey and peanut butter together to form a paste. Then stir in the almonds, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and rolled oats. Be sure to fold the mixture as well as stir until it starts to stick together.

Transfer the mixture your baking tray, flatten and fill into corners. Then leave in fridge for at least an hour.

When chilled, slice into bars and remove from the tray. Store in fridge.

What fruit and nuts would you add?

  1. *tries really hard not to lick phone screen* I reckon you could make these with pecans, maple syrup and raisins too. Although that might actually be TOO sweet...
