with dark chocolate, peanut butter

& banana chips

12 bars

15 minutes

Ingredients

 

  • 2 cups medjool dates pitted (approx. 20 dates)

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil

  • ½ cup banana chips

  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds

  • ½ cup peanuts

  • ½ cup oats

  • Pinch of salt

  • ¼ tsp cinnamon

  • 200 gr. Dark chocolate

Method

  • Put the dates, salt and cinnamon in a food processor and blend until they become a paste and form a sticky ball.

  • Melt the coconut oil and peanut butter in a bain marie and combine with the dates in the food processor.

  • Put the banana chips in a zip-lock and crush them into small pieces using a rolling pin or a pestle.

  • Add the crushed banana chips, pumpkin seeds and peanuts into the food processor and pulse a few times.

  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl, add the oats and mix well with your hands until fully combined.

  • Transfer to a baking dish (23 cm x 19 cm) lined with parchment paper and smooth over the top with a spoon or the bottom of a glass.

  • Melt the dark chocolate in a bain marie and pour over the mixture.

  • Set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

  • Cut into 12 same-size bars while still in the baking dish.

Tip: To cut the bars without cracking the hard chocolate topping, put boiling water in a glass, heat up the knife for a minute, wipe it dry with a towel, and then use it to carefully cut the bars. Repeat if the knife gets cold again.
