Home-made Energy Bars

Ffs Energy Bars

Use as a quick pre-training fuel or during your training session as a tasty, powerful chew.

This recipe makes ten, two-bite sized bars and provides 30g of natural carbs per bar.


Method

Pop 125g raisins and 150g dried apricots into a food processor and whizz together until it forms a sticky puree. 

Pour in 50g ground almonds, 60g black chia seeds and 100g oats and whizz again to combine and until it comes together into a dough. 

Press down into a 7 inch cake tin. Use a blunt knife to mark 10 even sized bars and put into the fridge to firm up and lose some stickiness. 

Wrap individually in greaseproof paper.
