Ingredients

  • 250 g Medjool dates pitted and finely chopped
  • 120 g smooth peanut butter or light tahini
  • 100 g honey
  • 100 g coconut oil
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150 g toasted buckwheat kasha
  • 150 g golden sultanas
  • 120 g mixed seeds pumpkin, sunflower, linseed, sesame
  • 100 g jumbo oats
  • 80 g desiccated coconut
  • 80 g roasted hazelnuts chopped (optional)
  • 50 g cranberries
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Method

  • Preheat oven to 150 C. Line a greased 20cm x 30cm baking tray with parchment paper
  • In a small saucepan over low to medium heat, combine dates, peanut butter (or tahini), honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Stir to melt and blend into a smooth paste. Remove from heat and set aside
  • Place remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well, then carefully add in the melted paste. Use a spatula to thoroughly combine the mixture - be careful as the peanut mixture may still be hot
  • Once the ingredients are fully blended, press the mixture firmly down on the prepared baking tray, smoothing the top evenly with the back of a spoon. Place tray in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top turns golden brown
  • After baking, let the tray cool for a while then place in the refrigerator. Once chilled, remove the tray and carefully slice the mix into individual bars or squares.

Maggie's Tips

  • Store in an airtight container in fridge for 1 month.
  • Nut free option: Use tahini instead of peanut butter. Omit hazelnuts.
  • Gluten free option: Make sure oats are GF or use quinoa or millet flakes
  • Vegan: Use maple syrup
